Seba

Additional Links

Son of Cush, a son of Ham, and the territory where his descendants were located. Genesis 10:7; 1 Chronicles 1:9; Psalm 72:10; Isaiah 43:3 . The descendants have been traced to Meroe, on the west of Abyssinia, and Josephus says that Meroe was at one time called Saba, or Seba. Its ruins lie between lat. 16 and 17 N. It is, however, believed by some that this tribe first settled near the Persian Gulf (probably along with the descendants of SHEBA, another descendant of Ham), and afterwards migrated into Africa. See SABEANS.
