Bible Names N-Z: Shobal
Shobal in Easton's Bible Dictionary
pilgrim. (1.) The second son of Seir the Horite; one of the
Horite "dukes" (Gen. 36:20).
(2.) One of the sons of Caleb, and a descendant of Hur
2:50, 52; 4:1, 2).
Shobal in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
1. Seir's second son, a "duke" or phylarch of the Horites
(Genesis 36:20; Genesis 36:29).
2. Prince or founder of Kirjath Jearim (1 Chronicles
2:50; 1 Chronicles 2:52). Soba (related to Shobal the founder
of Kirjath Jearim) answers to it; for Kirjath Jearim is
described as on the boundary of Judah, next Mount Seir, which
is next to Chesalon. Kesla now answers to Chesalon, on the
same ridge with Soba; and between the two is the mount called
Saghir, evidently answering to Mount Seir. The thickets W. of
Soba answer to Mount Jearim, "the hill of thickets." Baalah
was another name of Kirjath Jearim, meaning "elevated," which
is true of Soba. (Israel Exploration Quarterly Statement, July
1878, p. 114.)
