zil´pa ( זלפּה , zilpāh , meaning uncertain; Ζελφά , Zelphá ): The ancestress of Gad and Asher ( Genesis 30:10 , Genesis 30:12 ; Genesis 35:26 ; Genesis 46:18 ), a slave girl of Leah's, given her by Laban (Genesis 29:24 ; Genesis 30:9 ). In Ezek 48 the Zilpah tribes have the 5th division toward the South of Palestine and the 6th to the North, a slightly more favorable position than that of the Bilhah tribes.
