Sabeans

Meaning: descendants of Seba (Gen. 10:7); Africans (Isa. 43:3)

They were “men of stature,” and engaged in merchandise (Isa. 45:14). Their conversion to the Lord was predicted (Psalms 72:10).

This word, in Ezek. 23:42, should be read, as in the margin of the Authorized Version, and in the Revised Version, “drunkards.”

Another tribe, apparently given to war, is mentioned in Job 1:15.
