Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כָּבוּל [Cabul], pr.n.

(1) of a region in Galilee, containing twenty cities, given by Solomon to Hiram, 1 Kings 9:13. Josephus, in Ant. viii. 5, § 3, probably making a conjecture from the context, says μεθερμηνευόμενον γὰρ τὸ Χαβαλὼν, κατὰ Φοινίκων γλῶτταν οὐκ ἀρέσκον σημαίνει: but this meaning can scarcely rest on etymological grounds, and perhaps כָּבוּל is the same as גְּבוּל bound, limit. The Arabian geographers mention, in the province of Safad, in that region, a fortress called Cabûl كابول see Rosenüller, Analecta Arabica, iii. page 20.

(2) of a town in the tribe of Asher, Joshua 19:27.
