Zeeb (3)

Zeeb the wolf, was brought to bay in a winepress which in later times bore his name— "the winepress of Zeeb" (יֶקֶŠ זאֵב; Sept. Ι᾿ακεφζήφ v.r. Ι᾿ακεφζηβ, Vulg. Torcular Zeb). Down the Jordan valley, overlooking the plain of Jericho, is a sharp peak, still known as Ash el-Ghorab, i.e. "the Raven's, or Oreb's, Peak." Five miles north-west of this is a wady and mound known as Triveel el-Diab, i.e. "the Wolf's, or "Zeeb's, Den," which Tristram accepts as the required localities (Bible Places, p. 230). Rabbi Schwarz's suggestion (Palest. p. 231) is inapposite.
