Oreb in Wikipedia
Oreb, a Hebrew Old Testament name meaning raven.
By the time of the Judges, the Midianites, led by two princes
Oreb (Hebrew: עֹרֵב, Orev) and Zeeb (Hebrew: זְאֵב, Z'ev) were
raiding Israel with the use of swift camels, until they were
decisively defeated by Gideon. Oreb was slain along with Zeeb
(Judges 7:20-25 ). Many of the Midianites perished along with
him (Psalm 83:12 ; Isaiah 10:26 ).
The place where Gideon slew Oreb after the defeat of the
Midianites was called the Rock of Oreb. It was probably the
place now called Orbo, on the east of Jordan, near Bethshean.
