Treasury of Scripture

And from there he went against the inhabitants of Debir: and the name of Debir before was Kirjathsepher:

Debir

And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to Debir; and fought against it: …

Joshua 15:15
And he went up thence to the inhabitants of Debir: and the name of Debir before was Kirjathsepher.









(11) Debir.--See Joshua 15:15; Joshua 15:49. In Joshua 10:38-39, its conquest is assigned to Joshua. The name means "the oracle." It afterwards became a Levitic town. There seem to have been two other Debirs (Joshua 15:7; Joshua 13:26). This one is identified by Dr. Rosen with Dewirban, near the spring Ain Nunk-r south-west of Hebron.

Kirjath-sepher.--The name is curious and interesting. It means "the city of the book," and is rendered in the LXX. by "city of letters." It was also called Kirjath-sannah (Joshua 15:49), which, according to Bochart, means "city of learning." Perhaps, therefore, we may consider that it was a famous centre of Canaanite culture and worship. All further attempts to explain its three names must be purely conjectural. We may compare with it the name of the Egyptian Byblos (Ewald). The LXX. here fall into mere confusion.
