Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

דִּקְלָה [m. Diklah, pr.n. of a son of Joktan, Genesis 10:27.] Genesis 10:27 [Diklah], pr.n. f. of a region of Joktanite Arabia, probably abounding in palm trees; of such places there are many in Arabia. [See Forster’s Geog. of Arabia i. 147, where the Duklaite tribe in Yemen is compared with this pr.n.] There was one celebrated place of palm trees situated at the entrance to Arabia Felix, called in Gr. φοινίκων (Ptol. vi. 7), but this would be too far from the other territories of the Joktanites. [But Ges. overlooks that Jerah, the son of Joktan, is commonly called in Arab. أَبُو يَمَن the father of Yemen; see Forster i. 115.] I therefore prefer following Bochart, who (Phaleg. ii. 22) understands it to be the district of the Minæi, which was rich in palm trees (Plin. vi. 28).
