  how  little!  as  nothing.  (1.)  A  town  on  the  eastern  border  of 
  Asher  (Josh.  19:27),  probably  one  of  the  towns  given  by  Solomon 
  to  Hiram;  the  modern  Kabul,  some  8  miles  east  of  Accho,  on  the 
  very  borders  of  Galilee. 
  (2.)  A  district  in  the  north-west  of  Galilee,  near  to  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),  and  as  payment  of  the  six  score  talents  of  gold  he 
  had  borrowed  from  him  Hiram  gave  the  cities  this  name  because 
  he  was  not  pleased  with  the  gift,  the  name  signifying  "good  for 
  nothing."  Hiram  seems  afterwards  to  have  restored  these  cities 
  to  Solomon  (2  Chr.  8:2).
