STRONGS H2341:
חֲוִילָה proper name, of a territory (√ dubious DlPa 12 suggests חוֺל sand-land, downs, as Hebrew popular etymology, MV11 give it as actual etymology; StaThLZ Apr. 28, 1894, 235 compares this, as well as חוֺל sand, with Arabic bdb029606 soft mud, [dampsand]) — אֶרֶץ הַחֲוִילָה Genesis 2:11 (surrounded or bordered — סבב — by river Pishon; noted for excellent gold, bdellium and shoham-stone); elsewhere without article חֲוִילָה Genesis 10:7 = 1 Chronicles 1:9 as a 'son' of Cush (between סְבָא and סַבְתָּה); but also as a 'son' of יָקְטָן, a descendant of Shem Genesis 10:29 = 1 Chronicles 1:23 (between אוֺפִיר and יוֺבָב); עַדשֿׁוּר מֵח׳ Genesis 25:18 said of limits of Ishmaelitish territory; compare same limits of Amalek 1 Samuel 15:7 (but dubious; We reads טֵילָם, compare 1 Samuel 15:4 and see Dr; GlaserSkizze ii, 326 reads חֲכִילָה as 1 Samuel 23:19; 1 Samuel 26:1, 3). — Most have supposed several regions named ח׳ to be indicated in these passages: — e.g. Thes. 1. Arabian shore of Persian Gulf Genesis 10:29 etc. 2. Ethiopian coast Genesis 10:7 etc. 3. India Genesis 2:11 (regarded as indefinite extension of 1). DiGenesis 10:7 distinguishes 1 and 2 either as quite distinct, or as different settlements of one great people, and (on Genesis 2:14) thinks that כל ארץ ח׳ Genesis 2:11 implies vague extension eastward. DlPa 12 ff57ff. identification ח׳ in all passages with northeast part of Syrian desert, so EMeyGeschichte. Alterth. i. 224; GlaserSkizze ii. 323 ff. with central and northeast Arabia. The question is still undecided.
