1. Or ZABULON, Revelation 7:8, the sixth son of Jacob and Leah, born in Mesopotamia, Genesis 30:20. Moses gives us few particulars respecting him. His tribe was respectable for numbers, Numbers 1:30 26:26; and its portion in the Holy Land accorded with the prediction of Jacob, Genesis 49:13, extending from the Mediterranean sea at Carmel to the sea of Gemnesaret, between Issachar on the south, and Naphtali and Asher on the north and north-west, Joshua 19:10. His posterity are often mentioned in connection with Issachar, his nearest brother, Deuteronomy 33:18. They were entangled with the Phoenicians on the west, Judges 1:30 Isaiah 8:22, and took part with Barak and Gideon in the defense of the country against its oppressors, Judges 4:10 5:18 6:35. Elon, one of the Judges of Israel, was a Zebulunite, Judges 12:11-12. The inhabitants of this region in the time of Christ were highly favored by his instructionsNazareth and Cana, Capernaum, Magdala, and Tiberias being all in these limits.

2. A city in the border of Asher, but probably belonging to Zebulun, Joshua 19:27.
