- A district in the north-west of Galilee, near Tyre, containing twenty cities given to Hiram by Solomon as a reward for various services rendered to him in building the temple. (1 Kings 9:13) Hiram was not pleased with the gift, however, the name signifying "good for nothing". Josephus ("Ant." viii. 5, § 3) interprets "Cabul" as meaning "what does not please" (in Phoenician); but doubt has been cast on this interpretation of the term.
- One of the landmarks on the boundary of Asher, (Joshua 19:27) now the Kabul local council in Israel, 9 or 10 miles (16 km) east of Acco. Josephus ("Vita," § 43) refers to it as "the village of Chabolo situated in the confines of Ptolemais".
