Who are the Sabeans?
     Two tribes of this name are mentioned in the A.V. 1. Descendants of Seba, Isa 45:14; it should be simply "people of Seba," son of Cush. 2. In Joel 3:8 the descendants of Sheba, son of Joktan, are meant. Possibly a third tribe is spoken of in Job 1:15. The translation "Sabeans" in Eze 23:42 is incorrect; read, as in the margin, "drunkards."
