Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

שְׁבָא (compare Eth. ሰብእ፡ man), [Sheba],

(1)  Sabœans, Sabœa, a nation and region of Arabia Felix, rich in frankincense, spices, gold and gems, 1 Kings 10:1, seq.; Isai. 60:6 Jeremiah 6:20; Ezekiel 27:22; Psalms 72:15 carrying on a celebrated traffic, Eze. loc. cit.; Psalms 72:10 Joel 4:8 Job 6:19 but Job 1:15, carrying on depredations in the neighbourhood of Ausitis. The genealogies in Genesis mention three men of this name

(a) the grandson of Cush, and son of Raamah, Genesis 10:7 (b) a son of Joktan, Genesis 10:28 (which accords with the Arabic traditions);

(c) a grandson of Ketura, Genesis 25:3 and in two of the places (a, c), Shebah is coupled with Dedan his brother; this I would thus account for, by supposing that there were two Arabian tribes of this name, the one descended from Joktan in southern Arabia (letter b), the other dwelling by the northern desert of Arabia, near the Persian gulf and the mouth of the Euphrates (letters a, c, and Job loc. cit. [But a and c were of different ancestry]).
