    Zib'eon. (Robber). Father of Anah, whose daughter, Aholibamah, was Esau's wife.  Genesis 36:2. (B.C. 1797). Although called a Hivite, he is probably the same as Zibeon, the son of Seir, the Horite.  Genesis 36:20;  Genesis 36:24;  Genesis 36:29;  1 Chronicles 1:38;  1 Chronicles 1:40.

    Morrish Bible Dictionary [3]

    1. A Hivite, father of Anah and grandfather of Aholibamah, a wife of Esau.  Genesis 36:2,14 .

    2. Son of Seir and one of the dukes of the Horites.   Genesis 36:20-29;  1 Chronicles 1:38,40 . Some judge Nos. 1 and 2 to be the same person.

    Father of Anah, and grandfather of Aholibamah, Esau's wife ( Genesis 36:2). (See Anah .)

    (Heb. Tsibon', צבְעוֹן , Dyed [Gesen.] or Robber [F Ü rst]; Sept.' Σεβεγών ; Vulg. Sebeon ) , the father of Anah, whose daughter Aholibamah was Esau's wife ( Genesis 36:2). B.C. ante 1963. Although called a Hivite, he is probably the same as Zibeon the son of Seir the Horite ( Genesis 36:20;  Genesis 36:24;  Genesis 36:29; 1 Chronicles 1, 38, 40), the latter signifying "cave-dweller" and the former being the name of his tribe, for we know nothing of the race of the Troglodytes; or perhaps הִחַוַּי (the Hivite) is a mis-transcription for הִחֹרַי (the Horite). (See Esau).

    Another difficulty connected with this Zibeon is that Anah in  Genesis 36:2 is called his daughter, and in  Genesis 36:24 his son; but this difficulty appears to be easily explained by supposing that בת refers to Aholibamah, and not to the name next preceding it. The Samaritan, it should be observed, has בן . An allusion is made to some unrecorded fact in the history of the Horites in the passage "This [was that] Anah that found the mules in the wilderness as he fed the asses of Zibeon his father" ( Genesis 36:24). The word rendered "mules" (q.v.) in the A.V. is the Heb. יֵמַים , Yemim, perhaps the Emim, or giants, as in the reading of the Samuel הָאֵימַים , and so also Onkelos and Pseudo-Jonathan; Gesenius prefers "hot-springs," following the Vulg. rendering. Zibeon was also one of the dukes or phylarchs of the Horites ( Genesis 36:29). For the identification with Beeri, father of Judith the Hittite (26, 34), (See Beeri), and also (See Anath).

    International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [8]

    zib´ḗ - on ( צבעון , cibh‛ōn , "hyena"; Hpn , 95; Σεβεγών , Sebegṓn ): A H orite chief ( Genesis 36:2 ,  Genesis 36:14 ,  Genesis 36:20 ,  Genesis 36:24 ,  Genesis 36:29;  1 Chronicles 1:38 ,  1 Chronicles 1:40 ); he is called the "Hivite" in  Genesis 36:2 where "Horite" should be read with   Genesis 36:20 ,  Genesis 36:29 . In  Genesis 36:2 ,  Genesis 36:14 Anah is said to be "the daughter of Zibeon," whereas the Septuagint, the Samaritan Pentateuch, the Syriac, and Lucian have "the son of Zibeon"; compare   1 Chronicles 1:38 ,  1 Chronicles 1:40 , where also Anah is Zibeon's son.
