Phicol was the chief captain of the army of Abimelech, the
Philistine king of Gerar. He entered into an alliance with

agreement between Isaac and Abimelech, whereas the Phicol
mentioned in Genesis 21:22, 32 is in relation to an agreement

be a namesake handed down through a generation or possibly
even the name of a title (both are referred to as "commander
of the army"), such as Abimelech.
