Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

פּוּל [Pul], pr.n.

(1) of an African nation and country, Isaiah 66:19 (where it is joined with לוּד). Vulg. Africa. Bochart (Phaleg. iv. cap. 26) understands Philœ, an island in the Nile, situated between Egypt and Ethiopia, called by the Egyptians ⲡⲓⲗⲁⲕ or ⲡⲉⲗⲁⲕ (i.e. end, remote region; see Champollion, l’Egypte i. p. 158). From this Egyptian name both the Greek and Hebrew forms may have arisen; this latter indeed was perhaps interpreted elephant by the Hebrews (Chald., Syr., Arab. פִּיל, فيل, Pers. ديل), following the Phœnicio-Shemitic usage [Bochart’s opinion is regarded in Thes. as improbable].

(2) pr.n. of a king of Assyria, who preceded Tiglath-Pileser about 774-759, b. c. 2 Kings 15:19. (This name either signifies elephant, i.q. Pers. ديل, or else lord, king, i.q. Sanscr. pâla, Pers. بالا highly exalted, highest.)
