Cabul: How little! as nothing.
1. A town on the eastern border of Asher
(Joshua 19:27) probably one of
the towns given by Solomon to Hiram; the modern Kabul, some
8 miles east of Accho, on the very borders of Galilee.
2. A district in the north-west of Galilee, near to Tyre,
containing twenty cities given to Hiram by Solomon as a reward
for various services rendered to him in building the temple
(1 Kings 9:13) and as payment of the six score talents of gold he had
borrowed from him. Hiram gave the cities this name because he
was not pleased with the gift, the name signifying "good for
nothing." Hiram seems afterwards to have restored these cities
(2 Chronicles 8:2)
