Metaphysical meaning of Jobab (mbd)
Jobab, jo'-bab (Heb.)--celestial jubilation; shout of joy; fullness of joy; welling shout of rejoicing; trumpet call of victory, desert; howling of wild beasts; wail of tribulation.
a Son of Joktan, who was a descendant of Shem, Noah's son (Gen. 10:29). b Son of Zerah of Bozrah, and king of Edom (Gen. 36:33). c A king of Madon who joined Jabin king of Hazor against Israel (Josh. 11:1).
In Jobab, the thirteenth son of Joktan and the seventh generation from Noah, through Shem, we find a certain fulfillment of the seeming mortal and an entrance into that which the positive, spiritual meanings of the name signify--a realization of dominion over error and a rejoicing in Truth (celestial jubilation, trumpet call of victory).
