שבא

Aramaic / Hebrew “campaigners”, “adventurers”, and for “people who journey, for trade or other purposes”.

It also sometimes refers to traders from the southern part of the Arabian Peninsula, but also possibly to the land of Ethiopia. It is used as the name of one of Noach’s grandsons in Genesis, and as a country or place name in the Gospels and the Book of Kings.
