(guhr-bay' uhl) Place name meaning, “foreign sojourner of Baal” or “young animal of Baal.” An Arabian or bedouin city which God helped King Uzziah of Judah (792-740 B.C.) attack (2 Chronicles 26:7 ). Greek manuscript evidence does not have Baal in the name. This would mean the city was Gur, also mentioned in the Amarna letters and situated east of Beersheba. Other scholars would identify the town with Jagur (Joshua 15:21 ).
