The Scripture says that the Pison compasses the land of Havilah.
Bochart is of opinion that this part of Arabia is the land of Havilah, where, according to Gen. ii.
The flock will go to Jacob, the lad he's been training to follow him ever since his friend was killed, Havilah remarked timidly.
We remained a week at Havilah, making exchanges, and inspecting all that was worth seeing in the place.
Havilah was minded to speak again, but his elders' looks made him feel that they had heard him sufficiently.
Of course, Havilah cried, excited by the success of his last remark, he be more than fifty.
They had their home, it is said, in the desert which extended from Shur to Havilah.
And he dwelt to the west, and proclaimed a land which was called the land of Havilah.
the sand region. (1.) A land mentioned in Gen. 2:11 rich in gold and bdellium and onyx stone. The question as to the locality of this region has given rise to a great diversity of opinion. It may perhaps be identified with the sandy tract which skirts Babylonia along the whole of its western border, stretching from the lower Euphrates to the mountains of Edom. (2.) A district in Arabia-Felix. It is uncertain whether the tribe gave its name to this region or derived its name from it, and whether it was originally a Cushite (Gen. 10:7) or a Joktanite tribe (10:29; comp. 25:18), or whether there were both a Cushite and a Joktanite Havilah. It is the opinion of Kalisch, however, that Havilah "in both instances designates the same country, extending at least from the Persian to the Arabian Gulf, and on account of its vast extent easily divided into two distinct parts." This opinion may be well vindicated. (3.) One of the sons of Cush (Gen. 10:7). (4.) A son of Joktan (Gen. 10:29; 1 Chr. 1:23).
