Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 [כִּבְרָה] noun feminine apparently distance, only in the phrase כִּבְרַת (ה)ארץ a distance of land or length of way, Genesis 35:16 לָכוֺא אֶפְרָתָה׳ה ׳וַיְהִי עוֺד כ, Genesis 48:7 לָבאֹ אֶפְרָתָה׳א ׳בְּעוֺד כ, 2 Kings 5:19 אָ֑רֶץ׳וַיֵּלֶךְ מֵאִתּוֺ כ. The distance meant is uncertain, but from 2 Kings 5:19 it would seem to have been a short one; see further Di Genesis 35:16 and Thes (Assyrian kibrâti is a (widely extended) territory, quarter of the world, etc., Dl HWB 315; according to Hoffm. GGAbh. xxxvi (1890), 23-25 perhaps the distance that one can see).
