Zebulun (zĕb'u-lŭn), a habitation. One of the sons of Jacob, and of Leah. Genesis 30:20; Genesis 35:23; Genesis 46:14; 1 Chronicles 2:1. Of the individual Zebulun nothing is recorded. He had three sons, founders of the chief families of the tribe. Genesis 46:1-34, comp. Numbers 26:26. The tribe is not recorded to have taken part in any of the events of the wandering or the conquest. Its territory was remote from the centre of government. The conduct of the tribe during the struggle with Sisera, when they fought with desperate valor, was such as to draw the special praise of Deborah. Judges 5:18.
