Oreb


Oreb

Oreb, a Hebrew Old Testament name meaning "raven".

By the time of the Judges, the Midianites, led by two princes Oreb (Hebrew: עֹרֵב, "Orev") and Zeeb (Hebrew: זְאֵב, "Z'ev") were raiding Israel with the use of swift camels, until they were decisively defeated by Gideon. Oreb was slain along with Zeeb ().

The place where Gideon slew Oreb after the defeat of the Midianites was called the "Rock of Oreb". It was probably the place now called Orbo, on the east of Jordan, near Bethshean.
