Gubleans, or Gebalites, as the Targum; the same with Giblites, ( Joshua 23:5 ) ( 1 Kings 5:18 ) , or men of Gebal, ( Ezekiel 27:9 ) the same with Byblus: these dwelt in Phoenicia, near Tyre, where Pliny F7 makes mention of a place called Gabale: the Syriac version joins it with Ammon, and renders it "the border of Ammon":
and Ammon and Amalek, the Philistines, with the inhabitants of Tyre;
these are well known in Scripture, and as the enemies of Israel.
