Does anyone make figures that are intended to represent Biblical Hebrews these days? I am very confused.

Old glory 15s had some in the Successor range.oval shield spears or swords.
For earlier Hebrews some of the Chariot,, biblical ranges have castings that will work.

Chariot Miniatures, sold by Magister Militum.

Then there are Xyston's for the Maccabean period.

I was going to recommend the Fire and Forge figures, but they are of the Maccabean era.

The Magister Militum fit the bill if you are thinking about the armies Saul and David. I do see their figures are generic and are found again among other armies, such as the Bedouin.

That did bring up the possibility of using Old Glory's Biblical figures to increase the mix, specifically the SY5 Amorite and SY3 Canaanites (city dwellers).

Try Cutting Edge, now sold thru Warlord. They are true 25mm scale, slim and well proportioned, and really gorgeous models! Not quite what you were asking for, but if you take a look, I think you may consider switching!

I used a mix of Essex and Old Glory.

Sgt Major Miniatures had some, but since he went out of business about a two years ago, that line seems to have disappeared. I was fortunate to get just enough for an ADLG army just in time.

The revamped Museum Miniatures website has a few Judeans and Aramaeans tucked away in their ~ 7th century BC Assyrian range.

The only problem with biblical Hebrews is no one knows how they dressed, and if there were differences between tribes. The only good pictorial evidence I have found is the garrison of Lachish in the Assyrian period, as seen in the reliefs in the British museum…

I used Gladiator (Black Hat) bi45, Canaanite and Syrian Spear (Really JLS) for the Wb and Command in my DBA Army; Nice assortment of costumes, spears and weaponry (Not just Jav), separate Shields. Some of the bi46, Canaanite & Syrian Archers in Kilts also appear (One Pose), the other pose in the pack is in a Syrian Man-Dress, not used for that army. I have, er a lot of miscellaneous 15mm Biblicals, I think Magister Militum used to offer an Archer Assortment pack, plus assorted Essex and long out of Production Blood Ax, all mixed up in 3Ax/Wb and 2Ps.

If I could get some extra shields, I might use some of the Bi12, Bedouin Warrior with Javelin; The web illustration shows no shields, but they look like a good mix of beardy guys in Kilts and Tunics.

Checking the MM web site, EAS12, Hupshu Assyrian Spear is a "Must Have" in Kilt with a wicker shield; I have him mixed in with various Esssex and Blood Ax; Not sure if ASS19 Assyrian Bowmen is one pose or a mix (the Levy Now Pack)?

And, they have a pack of separate shields, ten of the Rectangular Wicker for UKP 2.00! Anyone have these in stock in the USA. Oh well, postage from the UK to the US on small orders is not yet prohibitive.
