Zebul @ habitation, the governor of Shechem under Abimelech Judges:9:28-30, 36). He informed his master of the intention of the people of Shechem to transfer their allegiance to the Hivite tribe of Hamor. This led to Abimelech's destroying the city, when he put its entire population to the sword, and sowed the ruins with salt Judges:9:28-45).
Zebulonite @ the designation of Elon, the judge who belonged to the tribe of Zebulun Judges:12:11-12).
Zebulun @ dwelling, the sixth and youngest son of Jacob and Leah Genesis:30:20). Little is known of his personal history. He had three sons (46:14).
Zebulun, Lot of @ in Galilee, to the north of Issachar and south of Asher and Naphtali Joshua:19:10-16), and between the Sea of Galilee and the Mediterranean. According to ancient prophecy this part of Galilee enjoyed a large share of our Lord's public ministry Isaiah:9:1-2; Matthew:4:12-16).
Zebulun, Tribe of @ numbered at Sinai Numbers:1:31) and before entering Canaan (26:27). It was one of the tribes which did not drive out the Canaanites, but only made them tributary Judges:1:30). It took little interest in public affairs. It responded, however, readily to the summons of Gideon (6:35), and afterwards assisted in enthroning David at Hebron ( 1Chronicles:12:33-40). Along with the other northern tribes, Zebulun was carried away into the land of Assyria by Tiglath-pileser ( 2Kings:15:29). In Deborah's song the words, "Out of Zebulun they that handle the pen of the writer" Judges:5:14) has been rendered in the R.V., "They that handle the marshal's staff." This is a questionable rendering. "The word _sopher_ ('scribe' or 'writer') defines the word _shebhet_ ('rod' or 'pen') with which it is conjoined. The 'rod of the scribe' on the Assyrian monuments was the stylus of wood or metal, with the help of which the clay tablet was engraved, or the papyrus inscribed with characters. The scribe who wielded it was the associate and assistant of the 'lawgivers.'" (Sayce).
