There are four persons who have been regarded as progenitors of the Sabeans.

1. Seba, son of Cush. Genesis 10:7 .

2. Sheba, grandson of Cush. Genesis 10:7 .

3. Sheba, descendant of Joktan. Genesis 10:28 .

4. Sheba, son of Jokshan. Genesis 25:3 .

The first two are descendants of Ham, and the last two descendants of Shem. For their localities see SEBA and SHEBA. Some were marauders who swept away the oxen and asses of Job. Job 1:15 . In Isaiah 45:14 they were travelling merchants. In Joel 3:8 they are represented as a people 'far off,' to whom Judah will sell their enemies. These passages may not all refer to the same people. In Ezekiel 23:42 the chethib reads 'drunkards,' as in the margin of the A.V. and the text of the R.V.
