(zehb' yoo luhn) Personal and tribal name probably meaning, “elevated dwelling.” Jacob's tenth son and sixth by Leah (Genesis 30:20 ). The tribe named for him settled in the area between the Sea of Galilee and Mount Carmel (Joshua 19:10-16 ). The tribe hosted the other tribes with religious festivals at Mount Tabor (Deuteronomy 33:18-19 ). Their menu included the delicacies fished from the Sea of Galilee. Militarily, the tribe distinguished itself in the struggles to possess the land, fighting faithfully in the armies of Deborah and Barak, and Gideon (Judges 4:6; Judges 6:35 ). See Israel; Palestine; Tribes.
