Zeeb

Meaning: the wolf

one of the two leaders of the great Midianite host which invaded Israel and was utterly routed by Gideon

The division of that host, which attempted to escape across the Jordan, under Oreb and Zeeb, was overtaken by the Ephraimites, who, in a great battle, completely vanquished them, their leaders being taken and slain (Judg. 7:25; Ps. 83:11; Isa. 10:26).
