The 1901 Jewish Encyclopedia
A later designation for the northern part of the Edomite mountain, called "Gebalene" by the Greeks; it occurs in Psalms 83:8 (A. V. 7), and, according to Winckler, also in Obadiah 5:6. The Arabic word "Jibal," from which the name has been derived, is still applied to this district.
