a king of Midian; see Numbers 31:8, Joshua 13:21 (Lekach Tov). There is a Midrashic teaching that Kazbi was a daughter of Balak (Numbers 22:2; Targum Yonathan; BeMidbar Rabbah 20:24; Midrash Aggadah on 25:6). Some say that Kazbi was a grand-daughter of Tzur on her mother's side (cf. Tzafanath Paneach). It is also possible that Balak was her maternal grandfather.
