JABIN (‘[God] perceives’). A Canaanite king who reigned in Hazor, a place near the Waters of Merom, not far from Kedesh. In the account, in Judges 4:1-24 , of the defeat of Jabin’s host under Sisera, the former takes up quite a subordinate position. In another account ( Joshua 11:1-9 ) of this episode the victory of the two tribes of Zebulun and Naphtali is represented as a conquest of the whole of northern Canaan by Joshua. Both accounts ( Joshua 11:1-9 , Judges 4:1-24 ) are fragments taken from an earlier, and more elaborate, source; the Jabin in each passage is therefore one and the same person.
