Shebuel (Hebrew: שבואל‎) was the son of Gershom, and a grandson of Moses and Zipporah. He, along with his first-cousin Rehabiah (the first-born and only son of Eliezer), were described as chiefs and included in the Tribe of Levi.[1] Shebuel is also described as "ruler of the treasures".[2] His name means "captive of God" or "returned of God".[3] His patrilineal lineage can be traced back to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob since Levi is both his great-great grandfather (through Jochebed) and great-great-great grandfather (through Amram). He is also descended from Jethro and Jethro's ancestor Midian, son of Abraham and his second wife Keturah, through his paternal grandmother Zipporah.
