Cabul

Additional Links

A city on the boundary-line of Asher (Joshua 19:27), identical with the modern Kabul (Buhl, "Geographie," p. 221). Josephus ("Vita," § 43) refers to it as "the village of Chabolo situated in the confines of Ptolemais." The name was applied also to an entire district which included twenty cities given by Solomon to Hiram, king of Tyre (1 Kings 9:13). Josephus ("Ant." 8:5, § 3) interprets "Cabul" as meaning, in Phenician, "what does not please"; but doubt has been cast on this interpretation of the term.
