Joshua 13:5  (King James Version)
And the land of the Giblites, and all Lebanon, toward the sunrising, from Baalgad under mount Hermon unto the entering into Hamath.
 


Giblites
Probably the inhabitants of the country, around Gebal, ( Ezekiel 27:9, ,)or Byblos, as the LXX. render, a city of Phoenicia,
situated on the Mediterranean, between Sidon and Tripoli, on the north of the river Adonis. It is now called Gibyle, of Djebail, situated about a day's journey south of Tripoli. Its walls are about a mile in circumference, with square towers about every forty yards' distance. Anciently it must have been a place of no mean extent and of considerable beauty, from the ruins still visible. 1 Kings 5:18 ; *marg:
