    Calcol in Easton's Bible Dictionary (1 Chr. 2:6), sustenance, the same probably as Chalcol (1 Kings 4:31), one of the four sages whom Solomon excelled in wisdom; for "he was wiser than all men."

    Calcol in Fausset's Bible Dictionary A man of Judah, descended from Zerah (1 Chronicles 2:6). Probably identical with Chalcol or Calcol, the same in the Hebrew, one of the four wise men whom Solomon exceeded (1 Kings 4:31). He and Darda or Dara are called "the sons of Mahol," i.e. of the choir; they were the famous musicians, two of whom are named in the titles of Psalm 88 and Psalm 89. However, if Mahol is a proper name, he is their immediate father, Zerah their ancestor, of the great family of Pharez of Judah.

    Calcol in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE kal'-kol, kal'-kol (kalkol): Mentioned in 1 Ki 4:31 as one of the wise men with whom Solomon was compared.

In the former passage, Calcol is the son of Mahol, while in the latter he is called the son of Zerah of the tribe of Judah, and a brother of Heman and Ethan.
