The word duke is from the Latin {dux,} a captain or leader, from {duco,} to lead, guide; which is the exact import of the Hebrew [alluph ] {alluph,} from [aleph, lamed, pheh,] to lead, guide; and is here applied to
heads of families, chieftains, or princes, who were military leaders. 18 ; 1 Chronicles 1:35
