Tubal

Tubal [N] [H] [S]

  • The fifth son of Japheth ( Genesis 10:2 ).

  • A nation, probably descended from the son of Japheth. It is mentioned by ( Isaiah 66:19 ), along with Javan, and by ( Ezekiel 27:13 ), along with Meshech, among the traders with Tyre, also among the confederates of Gog ( Ezekiel 38:2 Ezekiel 38:3 ; 39:1 ), and with Meshech among the nations which were to be destroyed ( 32:26 ). This nation was probably the Tiberini of the Greek historian Herodotus, a people of the Asiatic highland west of the Upper Euphrates, the southern range of the Caucasus, on the east of the Black Sea.
