Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
JABAL and JUBAL
The sons of Lamech and Adah. (See Genesis 4:20-21) The former was the father of those who lodge in tents, and the latter of those who handle the pipe or organ; by which is meant, that these men were the first inventors of those things. The name of both is one and the same meaning, like the Jobel or trumpet, somewhat that like sound glides away, and is lost in the air.
The son of Lamech, (Genesis 4:21) He invented instruments of music. His name is from Jobel, he that produceth.
