Ze’eb (wolf), one of the two “princes” of Midian in the great invasion of Israel. (b.c. about 1250.) He is always named with Oreb. Judges 7:25; 8:3; Ps. 83:11. Zeeb and Oreb were not slain at the first rout of the Arabs, but at a later stage of the struggle, probably in crossing the Jordan at a ford farther down the river. Zeeb, the wolf, was brought to bay in a wine-press which in later times bore his name—the “wine-press of Zeeb.” [Oreb.]
