Zebulun, Tribe of: Numbered at Sinai
(Numbers 1:31) and before entering Canaan
It was one of the tribes which did not drive out the Canaanites, but
only made them tributary
(Judges 1:30) It took little interest in
public affairs. It responded, however, readily to the summons of
(Judges 6:35) and afterwards assisted in enthroning David at
(1 Chronicles 12:33,40) Along with the other northern tribes, Zebulun
was carried away into the land of Assyria by Tiglath-pileser
(2 Kings 15:29) In Deborah's song the words, "Out of Zebulun they that
handle the pen of the writer"
(Judges 5:14) has been rendered in the
R.V., "They that handle the marshal's staff." This is a questionable
rendering. "The word sopher ('scribe' or 'writer') defines the word
shebhet ('rod' or 'pen') with which it is conjoined. The 'rod of the
scribe' on the Assyrian monuments was the stylus of wood or metal,
with the help of which the clay tablet was engraved, or the papyrus
inscribed with characters. The scribe who wielded it was the associate
and assistant of the 'lawgivers.'" (Sayce).
