Hi´el (God liveth), a native of Bethel, who rebuilt Jericho, above 500 years after its destruction by the Israelites, and who, in so doing, incurred the effects of the imprecation pronounced by Joshua ():


Accursed the man in the sight of Jehovah,

Who shall arise and build this city, even Jericho;

With the loss of his first-born shall he found it,

And with the loss of his youngest shall he fix its gates ().
