Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יְבוּס (a place trodden down, as a threshing floor, from the root בּוּס), pr.n. Jebus, an ancient name of Jerusalem, used in the time of the Canaanites, Judges 19:10, 11 Judges 19:11; 1 Chronicles 11:4, 1 Chronicles 11:5. The Gent. noun is יְבוּסִי Jebusite, collect. Jebusites, a Canaanitish nation, who inhabited that city with the neighbouring mountains, conquered by David, still in existence in the time of Ezra, Genesis 10:16, 15:21 Numbers 13:29; Joshua 15:63; 2 Samuel 5:6; Ezra 9:1. This Gentile noun is sometimes put for the city itself (for עִיר הַיְבוּסִי Judges 19:11 ); Joshua 15:8, 18:16 and poetically for Jerusalem, Zechariah 9:7 like כַּשְׂדִּים for Chaldæa.
