Son of Lamech "the father of all such as handle the harp and pipe" (Genesis 4:19-21 , R. V.) that is, he was the "father" or the first of the class of musicians, the founder of music, the inventor of the "kinnor" or lyre and of the "' ugab" or reed-pipe. It is noteworthy that though the three names "Jabal," "Jubal," and "Tubal" may be derived from the same root ( = "to lead" or "bring forth," "to be fruitful"), the name "Jubal" suggests likewise ("the ram's horn"), and hence "music."
