Ca´bul, a district given to Hiram, king of Tyre, by Solomon, in acknowledgment of the important services which he had rendered towards the building of the Temple (). Hiram was by no means pleased with the gift, and the district received the name of Cabul (unpleasing) from this circumstance. The situation of Cabul has been disputed; but we are content to accept the information of Josephus, who seems to place it in the north-west part of Galilee, adjacent to Tyre.
