The meaning of Zeboim in the Bible
(From Easton's Bible Dictionary)

gazelles or roes.

  • One of the "five cities of the plain" of Sodom, generally coupled with Admah (Genesis 10:19; 14:2; Deuteronomy 29:23; Hosea 11:8). It had a king of its own (Shemeber), and was therefore a place of some importance. It was destroyed along with the other cities of the plain.

  • A valley or rugged glen somewhere near Gibeah in Benjamin (I Samuel 13:18). It was probably the ravine now bearing the name Wady Shakh-ed-Dub'a, or "ravine of the hyena," north of Jericho.

  • A place mentioned only in Nehemiah 11:34, inhabited by the Benjamites after the Captivity.
