Gesenius Definition

לָבֵן i.q. לָבָן No. 1, const, state לְבֶן־ Genesis 49:12.

[“לַבֵּן Psalms 9:1 עַל מוּת לַבֵּן. Here some take לַבֵּן as a pr. name Labben of one of David’s enemies; others regard לּ as servile and בֵּן as the pr.n. of a Levite, as in 1 Chronicles 15:18. Some moderns suppose מוּת לַבֵּן to be the name of a musical instrument. Better to read עַלְמוּת לַבֵּן as in many MSS., with virgins, voice (עַל עֲלָמוֹת Psalms 46:1) for the boys, to be sung by them, בֵּן being taken as a collective.” Ges. add.]
