Ek'rebel (Ε᾿κρεβήλ; Pesh. Ecrabat; Vulg. omits), a place named in Jud. 7:18 only, as "near to Chusi, which is on the brook Mochmur," apparently somewhere in the hill country to the south-east of the Plain of Esdraelon and of Dothain. The Syriac reading of the word points to the place Acrabbein, mentioned Ly Eusebius in the Onomasticon as the capital of a district called Acrabatine, and still standing as Akrabah, about six miles south-east of Nablus (Shechem), in the Wady Makfuriyeh, on the road to the Jordan valley (Van de Velde, 2:304, and Map). Though frequently mentioned by Josephus (War, 2:20, 4; 3:3, 5, etc.), neither the place nor the district are named in the Bible, and they must not be confounded with those of the same name in the south of Judah.
