Bible Names N-Z : Zabulon


Zabulon in Wikipedia Zebulun (also Zebulon, Zabulon or Zaboules,[1] Hebrew: זְבֻלוּן or זְבוּלֻן or זְבוּלוּן, Tiberian Hebrew Zəḇūlūn, Standard Hebrew Zəvulun, commonly זבולון Zvulun in Israel) was, according to the Books of Genesis and Numbers,[2][3] the sixth son of Jacob and Leah, and the founder of the Israelite Tribe of Zebulun. Some Biblical scholars believe this to be an eponymous metaphor providing an aetiology of the connectedness of the tribe to others in the Israelite confederation.[4] With Leah as a matriarch, Biblical scholars believe the tribe to have been regarded by the text's authors as a part of the original Israelite confederation.[5]...
