(Hebrew: league)

Ancient royal city of Chanaan, famous in biblical history; mentioned in Old Testament (Genesis 13), when Abraham went to the vale of Mambre, a name given to Hebron. On the death of Sara, his wife, he bought there the cave of Machpelah as a burial-place for her, Isaac, Jacob and himself. David was anointed King of Juda at Hebron and made it his capital (2 Kings 2), and all the tribes of Israel came and made submission to him there (5). The modern El-Khulil, south of Jerusalem, occupies the site.
