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


THUBAL (תּוּבַל).  Hebrew biblical Tubal (q.v.), possibly meaning "iron" or "metal."

... Meshech and Thubal.  These two names are found together, not only in the Ethnographic Table in Genesis (chap. x. 2,) but also wherever they are mentioned in the Old Testament, Ezekiel xxvii. 13: xxxii. 26: xxxviii. 2, 3: xxxix. 1.  In like manner, the Greek writers class together the two tribes of similar name with these, the Moschi and Tibareni, who, according to Herodotus, belonged to the same government in the Persian monarchy, were marshalled in arms under the same leader, and formed but one division of the host.  These tribes inhabited a part of the second and more southern range of the Caucasus, which extends from the Turkish harbour and fortress of Battaumi, on the eastern shore of the Black Sea, to the banks of the Aras or Araxes.  This chain, which runs to the south-east, and is very woody, is now called the Moutains of Tschildir.  What Greek and Roman writers say of the Moschi, who once dwelt in this mountain tract, and of the Tibareni, who were their neighbours to the west, agrees very well with the accounts of Ezekiel respecting Meshech and Thubal.  In the prophecy against Tyre, it is said (chap. xxvii. 13), "Meshech and Thubal trade with thee, and give thee for thy wares, slaves and copper vessels."... (The Biblical Geography of Central Asia, Rosenmüller, v.1, 1836)
