(cay' buhl) Place name meaning, “fettered” or “braided.” 1. Town on northeast border of Asher (Joshua 19:27 ). May be located at modern Kabul nine miles southeast of Acco. 2. Region of cities in Galilee Solomon gave Hiram, king of Tyre, as payment for materials and services in building the Temple and the palace. Hiram did not like them and called them Cabul, a Hebrew word play meaning, “as nothing.” Apparently, the “gift” expected a gift in return, according to Near Eastern etiquette, for Hiram gave Song of Solomon 120 talents of gold ( 1 Kings 9:10-14 ).
