Gebal, 1

Ge´bal, a district, or perhaps sovereignty, south of Judea, in the land of Edom. Gebal signifies a mountain, and apparently belongs not to the most ancient times, as it does not occur when the Israelites were actually in this quarter, but is first found in , which was probably written in the time of Jehoshaphat. The country south of the Dead Sea, and on the east of the Ghor, or great valley, bears the same name (Jebal or Djebal) at the present day, and is doubtless the same as the Gebal of Scripture. We may therefore take Gebal as the name of the northernmost portion of Idumea, which was nearest to Palestine.
