Caleb (disambiguation)

Caleb (Hebrew: כָּלֵב "Bold; Dog; Crow; Basket", Standard Hebrew Kalev, Tiberian Hebrew Unicode|Kālēḇ) is a common given name.

In the Hebrew Bible:
*Caleb, the son of Jephunneh is an important figure in the Hebrew Bible, noted for his faith in God when the Hebrew nation refuses to enter the "promised land" of Canaan.
*Caleb is the name of one of the three sons of Hezron of the Tribe of Judah. He is also called Chelubai (1 Chr. 2:9). His descendants are enumerated in that chapter (verses 18-20, 42-49).
*Caleb is the "son of Hur, the firstborn of Ephratah" (1 Chr. 2:50). Some would read the whole passage thus: "These were the sons of Caleb. The sons of Hur, the firstborn of Ephratah, were Shobal, etc." Thus Hur would be the name of the son and not the father of Caleb (ver. 19).
