Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

סְבָא (fort. i.q. Ethiop. ሰብእ፡ a man; compare סַבְתָּה, סַבְתְּכָא), [Seba], pr.n. of a country and a nation sprung from Cush (Genesis 10:7), which, according to Josephus Ant. 2:10, § 2 ), seems to have been Meroë, a province of Ethiopia flourishing in merchandise and wealth, surrounded by the branches of the Nile. It had a metropolis of the same name, the ruins of which are still found not far from the town of Dschendi; (see Ed. Rüppell, Reisen in Nubien und dem Peträischen Arabien, 1829, tab. 5), Isaiah 43:3; Psalms 72:10. The Gentile noun, plur. סְבָאִים Isaiah 45:14 (on which passage compare Herod. iii. 20, as to the tallness of the nation). See Michaëlis Spicilegium Geogr. Hebr. ext. t. i. p. 177, seq., and his Supplemm., p. 1707.
