    Zeeb in Easton's Bible Dictionary 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).

    Zeeb in Fausset's Bible Dictionary ("wolf": name for a warrior). One of the two general "princes" of Midian, inferior to the king Zebah. Named with Oreb (Judges 7:25; Judges 8:3; Psalm 83:11). Slain at what was in consequence called "the winepress of Zeeb," at the ford of Jordan, near the passes descending from Mount Ephraim.
