EZBON

ez'-bon:

(1) ('etsbon; Peshitta, 'etsba`on; Septuagint Thasoban):

A son of Gad (Genesis 46:16) = Ozni of Numbers 26:16 (see OZNI).

(2) ('etsbon; Septuagint Asebon):

In 1 Chronicles 7:7 is said to be a grandson of Benjamin. Curtis (Ch., 148) holds that the genealogical table there is that of Zebulun and not Benjamin, and says that Ezbon suggests Ibzan (Judges 12:8-10), a minor judge of Bethlehem of Zebulun (Moore, Judges, 310).
