    ZIBEON

    zib'-e-on (tsibh`on, "hyena"; HPN, 95; Sebegon):

    A Horite chief (Genesis 36:2,14,20,24,29; 1 Chronicles 1:38,40); he is called the "Hivite" in Genesis 36:2 where "Horite" should be read with 36:20,29. In Genesis 36:2,14 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 1:38,40, where also Anah is Zibeon's son.
