Zevulon: Tribe of Sivan

Zevulon (זְבוּלֻן), also pronounced Zebulon, is the sixth son of Jacob and Leah.  His name comes from the word “zeved” (זֵבֶד), which means dowry or gift. Leah saw him as G!d(dess) endowing her with a good dowry with her six sons (Genesis 30:20).   His standard, based on the blessing Jacob bestowed upon him in Genesis 49:13, generally contains a ship as Zebulon was considered a sea-faring tribe.
