In the Holy Bible, Zephon was a son of Eliphaz (Esau's eldest son). According to the book of Genesis, his brothers were Omar, Teman, Gatam, Kenaz and Amalek.
In the Kabbalistic "Treatise on the Left Emanation" by Isaac ha-Cohen of Soria, Zephon (called Tzephon) is one of the angels associated with the 6th sephira, Tiphereth.
In Canaanite Religion Zephon was also identified with Jebel Aqra, the home of the Elohim, from which Yahu was cast out.
According to John Milton, Zephon is a cherub and a guardian prince of Paradise.
