(Hebrew Chukkok', חֻקֹּק , incised; Sept. Ι᾿κώκ 5. r. Ι᾿ακανά,Vulg. Hucusa), a town on the border of Naphtali, near Zebulon, not far from Jordan, west of Aznoth-Tabor, and in the direction of Asher (Joshua 19:34); elsewhere written HUKOK (חוּקֹק, Chukok', 1 Chronicles 6:75; Sept. Ι᾿ακάκ,.Vulg. Hucac); but probably, in this latter passage, erroneously for HELKATH (Joshua 21:35; comp. Joshua 19:25). Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Icoc), as well as Benj. of Tudela (2, 421), allude to it. It is doubtless identical with the modern small village Yakuk, between the plain of Genesareth and Safed (Robinson's Researches, 3 App. p. 133; Biblioth. Sac. 1843, p. 80), said to contain the grave of Habakkuk (see new edit. of Researches, 3, 81; and comp. Schwarz, Palestine, p. 182).
