Metaphysical meaning of Zibeon (mbd)
Zibeon, zib'–e–on (Heb.)--immersed; dipped in; dyed; tinged; variegated; ravenous preyer; wild robber.

a A Hivite. His granddaughter, Oholibamah, was one of Esau's wives (Gen. 36:2). b A son of Seir the Horite, and probably the same person as the former (Gen. 36 :20).

Meta. Hivites represent thoughts of opposition and resistance in the carnal phase of consciousness in unredeemed man. Zibeon (wild robber, ravenous preyer, immersed, dipped in, variegated, dyed) symbolizes a wild, lawless sense thought that has the capacity of adapting itself to the varying ideas and moods of the individual; thus it remains in his consciousness (until it is cast forth by Truth) and robs his body of its energy and substance.
