ATS Bible Dictionary
Arba

An ancestor of the Anakim, and founder of Hebron, to which he gave its ancient name, Joshua 15:13.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Four, a giant, father of Anak. From him the city of Hebron derived its name of Kirjath-arba, i.e., the city of Araba (Joshua 14:15; 15:13; 21:11; Genesis 13:18; 23:2). (see HEBRON.)
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
ARBA

ar'-ba ('arba`, "four"): Variously described as "the greatest man among the Anakim" (Joshua 14:15), "the father of Anak" (Joshua 15:13), "the father of Anok" (Joshua 21:11 margin). Thus he seems to have been regarded as the ancestor of the Anakim, and as the most famous hero of that race. He was the reputed founder of the city called after him, on the site of which Hebron was built (Joshua 21:11).
