Holman Bible Dictionary

Leb-Kamai, Leb-Qamai

(leeb-kuh' mi) Transliteration of Hebrew text. A code name for Babylon (Jeremiah 51:1 , NAS, NIV, NRSV, REB, RSV margin; Kambul, NEB). The code employed is athbash, a code which replaces each letter of a word with a letter that stands as far from the end of the alphabet as the coded letter stands from the beginning (z; y). NAS marginal reading “the heart of those who are against me” arose when the Masoretes added vowels to the code.
