Sabea, a kingdom of the ancient Near East, flourished from about 900 B.C. to 450 B.C. in the part of southern Arabia that is now Yemen. The Queen of Sheba may have been a Sabean, and Sabea may be mentioned several times in the Bible, see Job 1:15; Genesis 25:3; 1 Chronicles 1:32. Maimonides uses the term “Sabean” broadly to mean “pagans” generally.
