Origin of the name HEBHEL.
Etymology of the name HEBHEL.
Meaning of the baby name HEBHEL.


HEBHEL (הֶבֶל).  Hebrew biblical Abel (q.v.), meaning "breath, vapor"; "transitoriness."  Applied to Abel apparently from the shortness of his life (cf. James 4:14)]. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)

... The superiority of the herdsman's occupation to that of the agriculturist, a Semite notion so opposed to Aryan ideas that I cannot but think Adam's trade of gardener borrowed from the Aryans and not an original Semite feature, comes out in the great favor accorded by Yehovah to the offering of Hebhel or Hevel, ("Abel,") the herdsman, over that of his elder brother Kayin, (the "smith" and) the cultivator.  An early return of tribes India-ward is perhaps indicated by the flight of Kayin to Nod, "east of Eden."  Hebhel is evidently repeated in Yabhal ("Jabal") and Yubhal ("Jubal,")--while the crime of Kayin is duplicated by that of "Lamech," and Kayin himself re-appears in "Cainan" and in "Tubal-cain" the smith. (An Outline of the Future Religion of the World, Smith, 1884)
