Zeboim

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Zeboim : gazelles or roes.

  1. One of the "five cities of the plain" of Sodom, generally coupled with Admah (Genesis 10:19; 14:2; Deuteronomy 29:23; Hosea 11:8). It had a king of its own (Shemeber), and was therefore a place of some importance. It was destroyed along with the other cities of the plain.
  2. A valley or rugged glen somewhere near Gibeah in Benjamin (1 Samuel 13:18). It was probably the ravine now bearing the name Wady Shakh-ed-Dub'a, or "ravine of the hyena," north of Jericho.
  3. A place mentioned only in Nehemiah 11:34, inhabited by the Benjamites after the Captivity.
