Biblical Characters
    A group of inter-related tribes that lived on the northwestern shore of modern Saudi Arabia in Old Testament times
    Took or gave their name to the lost ancient city of Midian
    They made war against ancient Israel and nearly destroyed it a couple of times.
    Joseph was sold by his brothers to them.
    They worshiped Baal and a bunch of other false gods.
    They were allied with the Moabites, who weren't any better.
    They gave Moses refuge after he fled Egypt for killing an Egyptian slave driver. While in Midian, he married the daughter of one of its priests.
    After one battle against the Israelites, God ordered the death of all their males and all women, except virgins, who were taken as slaves.
    They were completely wiped out by Gideon in another battle.
    They were rich in cattle and gold and may have been the first to tame camels.
    The Koran speaks of them positively.
    They only attacked Israel after the Israelites moved into their territory.
    Their final end is kind of hard to reconcile with a merciful God.
