Leah conceived again and bore Jacob a sixth son. Then Leah said, "God has presented me with a precious gift. This time my husband will treat me with honor because I have borne him six sons. So she named him Zebulun. (Genesis 29:33)
Zebulun was the tenth son of Jacob and the sixth with Leah. Very little is known about his personal history other than the fact that he had three sons.
The prophecy of his father went as follows:
Zebulun will live by the seashore and become a haven for ships; his border will extend toward Sidon. (Genesis 49:5-7)
