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 (1 Chr. 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.)
