Zeboim, Zeboiim or Tzvoyim (Hebrew: צְבֹיִים, Modern Ẓəvoyim Tiberian Ṣəḇōyîm ; "Deer (plural); goats; gazelles; roes") was:

  1. One of the "five cities of the plain" of Sodom, generally coupled with Admah (Gen. 10:19; 14:2; Deut.29:23; Hos. 11:8). It had a king of its own (Shemeber), and was therefore a place of some importance. It was destroyed along with the other cities of the plain.
  2. A valley or rugged glen somewhere near Gibeah in Benjamin (1 Sam. 13:18). It was probably the ravine now bearing the name Wady Shakh-ed-Dub'a, or "ravine of the hyena," north of Jericho.
  3. A place mentioned only in Neh. 11:34, inhabited by the Benjamites after the Babylonian captivity.
