GEBAL. 1. A place apparently S. of the Dead Sea, whose inhabitants made a league with Edomites, Moabites, and the Bedouin of the Arabah against Israel, on some unknown occasion ( Psalms 83:7 ), possibly the Gentile attack described in 1Ma 5:1-68 . It is the modern Jebal . 2. A town in PhÅ“nicia, now Jebeil . It was theoretically (never actually) within the borders of the Promised Land ( Joshua 13:5 ). It provided builders for Solomon ( 1 Kings 5:18 RV [Note: Revised Version.] Gebalites, AV [Note: Authorized Version.] ‘stone-squarers’) and ships’ caulkers for Tyre ( Ezekiel 27:9 ).

R. A. S. Macalister.
