Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

כּוּב ἅπαξ λεγόμ. Ezekiel 30:5, [Chub], pr.n. of a country which is joined with Egypt and Ethiopia. Some understand by it Coben, a port of Ethiopia, or Cobium, a town near the Mareotis; perhaps it should be written נוּב Nubia, a reading followed by the Arabic translator (he undoubtedly imitating the LXX., although in our copies this word is wanting); he has translated اهل الذوبية the people of Nubia; a trace of this reading is found in De Rossi’s Cod. 409, which for וְכוּב a prima manu has וכנוב.
