O´reb and Ze´eb, the remarkable names (raven and wolf) of two emirs of the Midianites, who were made prisoners by the Ephraimites is attempting to recross the Jordan after the victory of Gideon. They were put to death by the captors, and their heads carried as a trophy to the conqueror, who was then on the other side the Jordan (; ). The first of these princes met his death near a rock, which thenceforth bore his name (); the other seems to have at first sought refuge in one of those excavations in which wines were preserved, and which was thenceforth called the winepress of Zeeb ().
