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).
Oreb (raven) and zeeb (wolf) were in command of the Midianites, and were killed by the Ephraimites in the retreat.
Among the slain were two of the princes of the Midianites, named Oreb and zeeb.
