(Hebrew: reward)
Ninth son of Jacob, fifth son of Lia. He was given the name Issachar, by his mother at his birth (Genesis 30). Isaachar had four sons: Thola, Phua, Jasub, and Semron, whose descendants formed the tribe of Issachar (Numbers 26). In the time of Moses the tribe counted 54,400 men capable of going forth to battle (Numbers 2). The character of the tribe is told in the words of Jacob (Genesis 49), satisfied with the richness of its territory, through which passed numerous caravans, the tribe of Issachar thought only of its own well-being; and so, rendering itself subordinate to strangers, found slavery (rest) preferable to liberty.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Issachar
(ihss' ssuh chahr) Personal name meaning “man for hire” or “hireling.” Ninth son of Jacob, the fifth borne by Leah (Genesis 30:18 ). He became the progenitor of the tribe of Issachar. Almost nothing is known about his personal history. The tribe of Issachar occupied territory in the northern part of Palestine, just southwest of the Sea of Galilee (Joshua 19:17-23 ). The tribe was not prominent in Israel's history. Tola, one of the so-called “minor” judges, was of the tribe of Issachar (Judges 10:1-2 ). So was Baasha, the successor of Nadab as king of Israel (1 Kings 15:27 ). The city of Jezreel, which was an Israelite royal residence, was located in the territory of Issachar. See Tribes of Israel; Chronology of Biblical Period.
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Issachar
Hebrew text Υisaskar , ("he is hire"); but the Masoretes as KJV Issachar, ("the hired one").
1. Leah's oldest son, Reuben, by presenting to Rachel, hired Jacob for Leah, the fruit of which intercourse was a fifth son by her, the first born after the interval from Genesis 29:35 to Genesis 30:17; the ninth son of Jacob. (See MANDRAKES (supposed to produce fertility).) Two reasons for his name are assigned: first, because she hired Jacob by the selfdenying gift of the mandrakes; secondly, as she says "God hath given me my hire, because I have given my maiden (Zilpah, Joshua 19:17-2366) to my husband." Both, in her view, were successive parts of one self denial (her aim being the multiplication of offspring) and the ground for naming him Israel. His sons Tola, Phuvah, Job (or Jashub, Numbers 26:24), and Shimron, were heads of the four chief families of the tribe (Genesis 46:13).
Jacob prophetically describes the tribe, "Israel is a strong donkey crouching down between two burdens (the cattle pens or sheepfolds, Speaker's Commentary; 'the hurdles,' Keil; found only in Judges 5:16); and he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant (slave) unto tribute" (Genesis 49:14-15), namely, unto the tribute imposed by the various invaders attracted to his land by the abundant crops. The strong boned he-ass used for field work (not the lighter and swifter she-ass for riding), crouching down between panniers or amidst sheepfolds, symbolizes a race content with agricultural labours instead of aspiring to political rule; a robust race, with a pleasant inheritance inviting to ease, as not requiring such toil as less fertile lands; ease at the cost of liberty. Pleasant serfdom, however suitable to Canaanites, was unworthy of Israelites, called of God to rule not serve (Deuteronomy 20:11; 1 Kings 9:21; Isaiah 10:27).
The name Israel is akin to the Hebrew "daily labourer." But in the conflict with Jabin and Sisera "the princes of Israel were with Deborah, even Israel and also Barak"; indeed the battle was perhaps on Israel's territory, "by Tadhath at the waters of Megiddo" (Judges 5:15; Judges 5:19). Conder however suggests that the whole scene of the battle was near Tabor within a radius of five or six miles. The kings assembled at Taanach, by the waters of Megiddo; but their fall was at Endor, according to Isaiah 66:11-12. Barak would not be likely to desert the fastnesses of Tabor and march 15 miles over the boggy plain to attack the Canaanites strongly placed on the sides of the low hills at Taanach. Scripture says, "I will draw unto thee Sisera ... unto the river Kishon." From Endor the kings ventured into the open plain S.W. of Tabor. Megiddo thus answers to Mujedda, a mound with ruins in the Jordan valley.
From it flowed "the waters of Megiddo" in the valley of Jezreel. The defeat of Sisera drove his host into "that river of battles (so Gesenius translates for 'ancient'), the river Kishon." Harosheth of the Gentiles answers to El Harathiyeh. The "wooded country" answers to the oak woods on the hills W. of Kishon, to which those Canaanites who went through the swamps fled. The Kedesh in Judges 4:9 is not that of Naphtali 30 miles off, but that on the sea of Galilee 16 miles from Tabor, a place suited for a gathering of the tribes, and within Naphtali's boundaries. Between this Kedesh and Tabor there is a broad plain in which is a place called Bessum = Bitzanaim, the plain to which Sisera fled (Palestine Exploration Quarterly Statement, October, 1877, p. 191). On the march in the desert Issachar was on the E. with Judah and Zebulun his brothers, the foremost in the march (Numbers 2:5; Numbers 10:14-15); Nethaneel was their commander. Igal represented Issachar among the spies (Numbers 13:7).
Paltiel, Israel's representative, was divinely appointed to take part in dividing Canaan (Numbers 34:26). Israel was appointed to stand on Gerizim to bless (Deuteronomy 27:12). The tribe's number at Sinai was 54,400 (Numbers 1:29); at the close of the wilderness march it reached 64,300, inferior to Judah and Dan alone. In Canaan Issachar's proximity to Zebulun continued. "Of Zebulun Moses said, Rejoice, Zebulun in thy going out (enterprise), and Issachar in thy tents" (comfortable enjoyment): i.e., not merely Zebulun was to be noted for "going out" in maritime traffic and Issachar for nomad life" in tents," and grazing, and agriculture; but, according to poetical parallelism, the whole is meant of both tribes, Rejoice Zebulun and Issachar in your labour and your rest, in your undertakings at home and abroad, both alike successful. The thought is individualized by its distribution into parallel members.
"They shall call the people unto the mountain (they will not make their riches into selfish mammon, but will invite the nations to 'the mountain of the Lord's inheritance': Exodus 15:17; a moral not physical elevation, the Holy Land and its sanctuary), there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness (not merely outwardly legal sacrifices, but also in a right spirit of faith and loving obedience: Psalms 4:6; Psalms 51:21; inviting all men to the sacrificial feast, and to join them in the happy worship of Jehovah: Psalms 22:28-31; Isaiah 60:5-6; Isaiah 60:16; Psalms 83:10), for they shall suck of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand" (not merely the fish, purple dye, sponges, and glass; but the richest treasures of sea and land shall flow into Israel, of which Zebulun and Issachar were to be flourishing tribes.
Here in Galilee Jesus imparted the spiritual riches, to which the Galilean apostles in due time "called" all "peoples"): Deuteronomy 33:18-19; Matthew 4:13-16. Its inheritance extended in length from Carmel to the Jordan; in width to Mount Tabor on the N. (Josephus, Ant. 5:1, section 22); it consisted of the very rich plain of Jezreel or Esdraelon. Jezreel (whose name = "the seed plot of God" implies fertility) stood in the center, with Mount Gilboa on one hand and Little Hermon (Ed Duhy) on the other (1618532405_6). It is the thoroughfare from E. to W. and from N. to S. Here Ahab had his palace, selecting the site doubtless for its beauty. D. Kerr thinks that Issachar lay to the E. of Manasseh and Ephraim, along the entire line of the Jordan from the sea of Chinneroth on the N. to nearly the Salt Sea on the S. Its lot thus was of a triangular form, having its apex at Jericho and its base to the N. of the plain of Jezreel, where it was met by Zebulun (Palestine Exploration Quarterly Statement, January, 1877, p. 47).
Tola the judge was of Issachar, though his abode was at Shamir in Mount Ephraim. The nomadic character of Issachar appears in 1 Chronicles 7:1-5; no less than 36,000 of its men were marauding mercenary "bands (giduwdim ) of soldiers for war," a term applied elsewhere only to Gad's "troops" and to the irregular bodies of Bedouin-like tribes round Israel. Two hundred "heads" (not as KJV "bands," for it is roshee not giduwdim ) of Issachar came to Hebron to help in "turning the kingdom of Saul to David"; they were "men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do ... and all their brethren were at their commandment" (1 Chronicles 10:14 ff; 1 Chronicles 12:23; 1 Chronicles 12:32). Spiritually, Christians are men "knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep, for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed" (Romans 13:11; Ephesians 5:16; see 1 Peter 4:1-4).
We should help to transfer the kingdom from Satan to its coming rightful Lord (Luke 19:12-27; Luke 19:44). Jerusalem fell "because she knew not the time of her visitation." They are truly "wise" who "turn many from the power of Satan unto God" (Daniel 12:3; Acts 26:18). Omri of the great family of Michael ruled in David's time; possibly forefather of Omri who usurped the Israelite throne (1 Chronicles 27:18), and built Samaria (perhaps on the same hill Shamir on which Tola of Issachar judged). Baasha son of Ahijah, another usurper, was also of Issachar (1 Kings 15:27-29; 1 Kings 16:2; 1 Kings 16:11), of lowest birth; his son Elah and all his kindred were murdered by Zimri, even as Baasha had slain Jeroboam's house, "not leaving to him any that breathed." Retributive justice pays blood with blood (Revelation 16:6).
The last glimpse of Issachar we have is, when many of the tribe joined in Hezekiah's Passover and religious revival (2 Chronicles 30:18), though unavoidably not cleansed in legal order; for these Hezekiah prayed "the good Lord pardon every one that prepareth his heart to seek God, the Lord God of his fathers, though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary." But Issachar shall again come forth with his 12,000 sealed ones, when the Lord shall restore again the kingdom to Israel (Acts 1:6; Revelation 7:7; Revelation 14:1).
2. Obed Edom's seventh son, doorkeeper of the sanctuary (1 Chronicles 26:5), one of the eight sons given Obed Edom, "for God blessed him."
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Issachar
ISSACHAR . The fifth son of Leah, born after Gad and Asher, the sons of Zilpah, and the ninth of Jacob’s sons ( Genesis 30:18 [1] ], cf. 35:22b ff. [2] ]). The name (in Heb. Yiss-askar ) is peculiar in form, and of uncertain signification; but it is quite probable that it has arisen from a corruption of ’ish-sakhar as Wellhausen ( Sam . 95) suggests, and further, that the latter element is the name of a deity. Ball ( SBOT [3] , ad loc .) suggests the Egyptian Memphite god Sokar . The name would then correspond to the name ’ish-Gad by which the Moabites knew the Gadites. J [4] and E [5] , however, both connect it with the root sâkhar , ‘to hire’: J [4] , because Leah ‘hired’ Jacob from Rachel with Reuben’s mandrakes; E [5] , because she gave Zilpah to Jacob. The difference shows that the traditions are of little value as linguistic guides. Genesis 49:14-15 also appears to play upon the root sâkhar in its description of Issachar as ‘a servant under task work.’ This would harmonize with the interpretation ‘hired man’ or ‘labourer.’ It has, however, little to commend it.
P [8] ’s census at Sinai gives the tribe 54,400 (Numbers 1:29 ), and at Moab 64,300 (26:25); cf. 1 Chronicles 7:5 . For the clans see Genesis 46:13 and 1 Chronicles 7:1 ff..
The original seat of the tribe appears to have been S. of Naphtali and S.E. of Zebulun, ‘probably in the hills between the two valleys which descend from the Great Plain to the Jordan ( Wady el-Bireh and Nahr Galud )’ (Moore, Judges , 151). On the N.W. it touched upon Mt. Tabor, on the S. upon Mt. Gilboa. Eastward it reached to the Jordan. P [8] ’s lot ( Joshua 19:17-23 ) assigns to the tribe sixteen cities and their villages, scattered throughout the eastern end of the rich Plain of Esdraelon and the Valley of Jezreel. The tribe participated in the war against Sisera ( Judges 5:15 ), and Deborah perhaps belonged to it. The ‘with’ before Deborah might be read ‘people of’; but the verse is evidently corrupt. Baasha, the son of Ahijah, who succeeded Nadab, was ‘of the house of Issachar’; and, possibly, also Omri, who gave his name to the Northern Kingdom. The references in the Blessing of Jacob ( Genesis 49:1-33 ) would indicate that during the early monarchy Issachar lost both its martial valour and its independence. On the other hand, in the Blessing of Moses ( Deuteronomy 33:18-19 ) great commercial prosperity is indicated, and the maintenance of a sanctuary to which ‘the peoples’ flock to the sacrificial worship. Tola the judge, the grandson of Dodo, was a man of Issachar ( Judges 10:1 ). This name Dodo , occurring on the Mesha stele as that of a divinity, has led to the suggestion that he may have been worshipped in early times by the tribe. According to the Talmud, the Sanhedrin drew from Issachar its most intellectually prominent members. See also Tribes of Israel.

Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Issachar
Genesis 49:14 (c) He is a type of the Lord JESUS bearing GOD's burden for man and man's burden for sin, thus making it possible for man to rest. Also a type of the Christian who bears GOD's burden for the lost and man's burden in his need of rest and redemption.
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Issachar
1. The ninth son of Jacob, and the fifth of Leah. Of his personal history there is no record except that he had four sons, who became heads in the tribe. When Jacob blessed his sons he said, "Issachar is a strong ass, couching down between two burdens, and he . . . . bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant unto tribute." Genesis 49:14,15 . This seems to imply that this tribe, with Zebulun, would mix with the world and become slaves to it for profit. When Moses blessed the tribes, Issachar and Zebulun are also placed together. He said, "They shall call the people unto the mountain; there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness: for they shall suck of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand." Deuteronomy 33:19 . This seems to point also to commercial enterprise. Some of Issachar resorted to David at Ziklag, of whom it is said they "had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do." 1 Chronicles 12:32 . At the first numbering there were of Issachar 54,400 fit for war, and at the second 64,300. They are described as 'valiant men of might,' and they furnished 36,000 men of war. 1 Chronicles 7:4,5 . The tribe possessed some of the most productive portions of the land, including the extensive plain of Jezreel, with the Jordan on its border for about 50 miles.
2. Son of Obed-Edom, a Korhite Levite. 1 Chronicles 26:5 .
The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Issachar
The son of Jacob, by Leah. (Genesis 30:14-18) His name signifies a price of hire; and so it is rendered in the margin of our Bibles, derived from Shachar, a price. The most remarkable circumstance in the history of Issachar, is his father's prophetical blessing of him. (Genesis 49:14-15) "Issachar (said the dying patriarch) is a strong ass, couching down between two burthens; and he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and become a servant into tribute." If the sense of this passage (as most of the other blessings Jacob when a-dying bequeathed to his children are) be spiritual, there is much of Jesus, and his person and salvation in it. Issachar, like all true Israelites, bends between the two burthens of sin and sorrow, for they are inseparable; and no rest but Jesus can be found, to deliver from the dreadful pressure. He is, indeed, "the rest wherewith he causeth the weary to rest" from the burden. Easy will be the tribe of a redeemed heart to the Lord, to bless him for his mercy. We find similar beauties in the blessing of Moses, the man of God, over Issachar, if explained in the same gospel-sense. (See Deuteronomy 33:18-19)
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Issachar
the fifth son of Jacob and Leah, Genesis 30:14-18 . He had four sons, Tola, Phovah, Job, and Shimron. We know nothing particular of his life. The tribe of Issachar had its portion in one of the best parts of the land of Canaan, along the great plain or valley of Jezreel, with the half tribe of Manasseh to the south, that of Zebulun to the north, the Mediterranean to the west, and Jordan, with the extremity of the sea of Tiberias, to the east.
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Issachar
Recompense, so named by Leah his mother, Genesis 30:18 , the ninth son of Jacob, born B. C. 1749. The character of his posterity was foretold by Jacob and by Moses, Genesis 49:14,15 Deuteronomy 33:18,19 .
The TRIBE OF ISSACHAR numbered fifty-four thousand men in the desert, and on entering Canaan was the third in population, Numbers 1:28 26:25 . Their portion, having the Jordan on the east, Manasseh on the west, Zebulun north, and Ephraim south, included a considerable part of the fine plain Esdraelon, the most fertile in the country. They were industrious agriculturists, and are mentioned with honor for their brave and wise patriotism, Judges 5:15 1 Chronicles 7:15 12:32 .
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Issachar
Hired (Genesis 30:18 ). "God hath given me," said Leah, "my hire (Heb. sekhari)...and she called his name Issachar." He was Jacob's ninth son, and was born in Padan-aram (comp 28:2). He had four sons at the going down into Egypt (46:13; Numbers 26:23,25 ). Issachar, Tribe of, during the journey through the wilderness, along with Judah and Zebulun (Numbers 2:5 ), marched on the east of the tabernacle. This tribe contained 54,400 fighting men when the census was taken at Sinai. After the entrance into the Promised Land, this tribe was one of the six which stood on Gerizim during the ceremony of the blessing and cursing (Deuteronomy 27:12 ). The allotment of Issachar is described in Joshua 19:17-23 . It included the plain of Esdraelon (=Jezreel), which was and still is the richest portion of Palestine (Deuteronomy 33:18,19 ; 1 Chronicles 12:40 ).
The prophetic blessing pronounced by Jacob on Issachar corresponds with that of Moses (Genesis 49:14,15 ; Compare Deuteronomy 33:18,19 ).
Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Issachar
Nothing is known of the man Issachar apart from the fact that he was the fifth son that Leah bore to Jacob (Genesis 30:17-18). The tribe descended from him inherited land that covered the important Plain of Esdraelon and Valley of Jezreel in northern Israel (see PALESTINE; JEZREEL). This territory lay between Mt Tabor to the north and Mt Gilboa to the south (Joshua 19:17-23).
Important trade routes ran through Issachar’s territory, connecting inland and coastal towns. The commercial activity that resulted, along with the good farming country of the area, brought much prosperity to Issachar. But its desire for prosperity meant that, except for one notable victory, it had to submit to the Canaanite people. Being equipped with an army of chariots, the Canaanites were well able to control the relatively flat country (Genesis 49:14-15; Deuteronomy 33:18-19; Judges 4:12-15; Judges 5:15). At least two national leaders of Israel came from Issachar (Judges 10:1; 1 Kings 15:27).

Issachar - The most remarkable circumstance in the history of Issachar, is his father's prophetical blessing of him. (Genesis 49:14-15) "Issachar (said the dying patriarch) is a strong ass, couching down between two burthens; and he saw that rest was good, and the land that it was pleasant; and bowed his shoulder to bear, and become a servant into tribute. Issachar, like all true Israelites, bends between the two burthens of sin and sorrow, for they are inseparable; and no rest but Jesus can be found, to deliver from the dreadful pressure. We find similar beauties in the blessing of Moses, the man of God, over Issachar, if explained in the same gospel-sense

Baasha, the son of Ahijah, who succeeded Nadab, was ‘of the house of Issachar’; and, possibly, also Omri, who gave his name to the Northern Kingdom.

Igal represented Issachar among the spies (Luke 19:12-27). In Canaan Issachar's proximity to Zebulun continued. "Of Zebulun Moses said, Rejoice, Zebulun in thy going out (enterprise), and Issachar in thy tents" (comfortable enjoyment): i. , not merely Zebulun was to be noted for "going out" in maritime traffic and Issachar for nomad life" in tents," and grazing, and agriculture; but, according to poetical parallelism, the whole is meant of both tribes, Rejoice Zebulun and Issachar in your labour and your rest, in your undertakings at home and abroad, both alike successful. ...
"They shall call the people unto the mountain (they will not make their riches into selfish mammon, but will invite the nations to 'the mountain of the Lord's inheritance': Exodus 15:17; a moral not physical elevation, the Holy Land and its sanctuary), there they shall offer sacrifices of righteousness (not merely outwardly legal sacrifices, but also in a right spirit of faith and loving obedience: Psalms 4:6; Psalms 51:21; inviting all men to the sacrificial feast, and to join them in the happy worship of Jehovah: Psalms 22:28-31; Isaiah 60:5-6; Isaiah 60:16; Isaiah 66:11-12), for they shall suck of the abundance of the seas, and of treasures hid in the sand" (not merely the fish, purple dye, sponges, and glass; but the richest treasures of sea and land shall flow into Israel, of which Zebulun and Issachar were to be flourishing tribes. Kerr thinks that Issachar lay to the E. ...
Tola the judge was of Issachar, though his abode was at Shamir in Mount Ephraim. The nomadic character of Issachar appears in 1 Chronicles 7:1-5; no less than 36,000 of its men were marauding mercenary "bands (giduwdim ) of soldiers for war," a term applied elsewhere only to Gad's "troops" and to the irregular bodies of Bedouin-like tribes round Israel. Two hundred "heads" (not as KJV "bands," for it is roshee not giduwdim ) of Issachar came to Hebron to help in "turning the kingdom of Saul to David"; they were "men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do . Omri of the great family of Michael ruled in David's time; possibly forefather of Omri who usurped the Israelite throne (1 Chronicles 27:18), and built Samaria (perhaps on the same hill Shamir on which Tola of Issachar judged). Baasha son of Ahijah, another usurper, was also of Issachar (1 Kings 15:27-29; 1 Kings 16:2; 1 Kings 16:11), of lowest birth; his son Elah and all his kindred were murdered by Zimri, even as Baasha had slain Jeroboam's house, "not leaving to him any that breathed. ...
The last glimpse of Issachar we have is, when many of the tribe joined in Hezekiah's Passover and religious revival (2 Chronicles 30:18), though unavoidably not cleansed in legal order; for these Hezekiah prayed "the good Lord pardon every one that prepareth his heart to seek God, the Lord God of his fathers, though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary. " But Issachar shall again come forth with his 12,000 sealed ones, when the Lord shall restore again the kingdom to Israel (Acts 1:6; Revelation 7:7; Revelation 14:1)

Tribes of Israel - ]'>[2] ’s genealogy (Genesis 29:1-35 ; Genesis 30:1-43 ), is not 12 but 13, and in the following order:...
Leah tribes Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah 4 Bilhah (Rachel) tribes Dan, Naphtali 2 Zilpah (Leah) tribes Gad, Asher 2 Leah tribes Issachar, Zebulun 2 Rachel tribes Joseph = (Manasseh, Ephraim) 2 Benjamin (born in Palestine), Genesis 35:18 1 13 To obtain the number 12 from this scheme it is necessary to omit Levi, or to count Manasseh and Ephraim as one. The position of Issachar and Zebulun indicates that they were later in acquiring a foothold than the four earlier Leah tribes, yet earlier than Joseph. Asher with Gad as Zilpah tribes, despite their wide separation, Issachar and Zebulun with Judah as Leah tribes, are of doubtful import
Rest - The individual desires rest, as did the nation ( Psalms 55:8 ); it is not to be found in ignoble ease ( Genesis 49:15 Issachar), but in the ways of God ( Psalms 37:7 , Jeremiah 6:10 ); it is the gift of Christ ( Matthew 11:28 )
Shunem - A border town of Issachar ( Joshua 19:18 ), and the camping-ground of the Philistines before Saul’s last battle ( 1 Samuel 28:4 )

Manasseh - This was divided in the promised land: one part having settled east of the Jordan, in the country of Bashan, from the river Jabbok northwards; and the other west of the Jordan, between Ephraim and Issachar, extending from the Jordan to the Mediterranean
Tribes of Israel, the - The sons of Leah included Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah (Genesis 29:31-35 ), Issachar and Zebulun, as well as one daughter named Dinah (Genesis 30:19-21 ). Issachar was the ninth son born to Jacob, but the first of a second family he had by Leah (Genesis 30:18 ). During the journey from Mount Sinai to Canaan the tribe of Issachar followed the tribe of Judah, that is, it was a part of the first cluster of tribes located on the east side of the tabernacle (Numbers 2:5 ). The territory occupied by the tribe of Issachar is difficult to outline precisely (Joshua 19:17-23 ). Because the blessing of Moses says that Zebulun and Issachar “call peoples to the mountain;/there they offer the right sacrifices” (Deuteronomy 33:19 NRSV), some have speculated that the two tribes perhaps had a center of worship on Mount Tabor, a mountain located on the border between the two tribes. Because the blessing of Jacob speaks of Issachar as a beast of burden and as “a slave at forced labor” ( Genesis 49:14-15 NRSV), the tribe of Issachar may have faced a variety of hardships. For instance there may have been a time during the tribal period when the people of Issachar served as slaves in the forced labor projects of their neighbors, the Canaanites. The territory allotted to the tribe of Zebulun was in the north in the region of southern Galilee bounded by Issachar on the south southeast, Naphtali on the east, and Asher on the west (Joshua 19:10-16 ). The blessing of Moses further states that Zebulum along with Issachar would benefit from “the affluence of the seas and the hidden treasures of the sand” ( Deuteronomy 33:19 NRSV). This band of land ran from Issachar and Zebulun in the south to near Dan in the north (Joshua 19:32-39 )

"Rejoice Zebulun in thy going out (thy mercantile enterprises by sea and fishing in the lake of Galilee), and Issachar in thy tents (in thy inland prosperity, agriculture and home comforts) they shall suck of the abundance of the seas (the riches of the sea in general, and the purple dye extracted from the murex here) and of treasures hid in the sand" (the sand of these coasts being especially valuable for manufacturing glass, a precious thing anciently: Job 28:17). : Zebulun and Issachar shall offer their wealth at the Lord's appointed mount, and invite Gentile nations to join them (Psalms 22:27-28, etc
