One of the five cities of the "plain" or circle of Jordan. It is mentioned in (Genesis 10:19; 14:2,8; 29:23; Hosea 11:8) in each, of which passages it is either coupled with Admah or placed next it in the lists--perhaps represented by Talaa Sebaan, a name attached to extensive ruins on the high ground between the Dead Sea and Kerak. In (Genesis 14:2,8) the name is given more correctly in the Authorized Version ZEBOIIM.
* See other occurrences of the same term: Zeboim.
