Zebulun, one of the 12 tribes of Israel that in biblical times constituted the people of Israel who later became the Jewish people. The tribe was named for the sixth son born of Jacob and his first wife, Leah.
The anointing of the tribe of Zebulun is an anointing for Kingdom finance. It’s also an anointing the Lord will give YOU if you’ll ask Him; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Check it out, and ask the Lord for this anointing of the tribe of Zebulun!
In the Old Testament Zebulun is the tenth son of Jacob (his sixth son by Leah) and the ancestor of one of the twelve tribes of Israel. Genesis 30:20 implies two different roots for the name: זָבַל (zaval) meaning “to dwell” and זֵבֵד (zeved) meaning “gift, dowry”.
The land of Zabulon, and the land of Naphtali, which is the way of the sea, and which is beyond Jordan, viz. the people of Galilee of the Gentiles, the people which walked in darkness. Glossa Ordinaria: Note that there are two Galilees; one of the Jews, the other of the Gentiles.
The portion assigned to the tribe of Dan was a region west of Jerusalem. At least part of the tribe later moved to the extreme northeast and took the city of Laish, renaming it Dan. As the northernmost Israelite city it became a point of reference in the familiar phrase “from Dan to Beersheba.”
As part of the Kingdom of Israel, the territory of Zebulun was conquered by the Assyrians, and the tribe exiled; the manner of their exile led to their further history being lost.
Naphtali, in biblical times, one of the 12 tribes that, under the leadership of Joshua, took possession of Canaan, the Promised Land, after the death of Moses. The tribe of Naphtali thus lost its identity and became known in Jewish legend as one of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.
According to the Book of Genesis, Naphtali (/ˈnæftəlaɪ/; Hebrew: נַפְתָּלִי, Modern: Naftali, Tiberian: Nap̄tālî, “my struggle”) was the sixth son of Jacob and second son with Bilhah. He was the founder of the Israelite Tribe of Naphtali.
Gad ( Hebrew: גָּד, Modern: Gad, Tiberian: Gāḏ, “luck”) was, according to the Book of Genesis, the first son of Jacob and Zilpah, the seventh of Jacob overall, and the founder of the Israelite tribe of Gad.
Issachar ( Hebrew: יִשָּׂשכָר, Modern: Yisaskhár, Tiberian: Yiśāśḵār, “reward; recompense”) was, according to the Book of Genesis, a son of Jacob and Leah (the fifth son of Leah, and ninth son of Jacob), and the founder of the Israelite Tribe of Issachar.
Galilee, Hebrew Ha-galil, northernmost region of ancient Palestine, corresponding to modern northern Israel. Its biblical boundaries are indistinct; conflicting readings leave clear only that it was part of the territory of the northern tribe of Naphtali.
Zebulun was the tenth of Jacob’s twelve sons. He was born right after Issachar. His mother was Leah, the first of Jacob’s wives, which may have something to do with Zebulun’s name.
