Huk'kok (Hebrew Chukkok', חֻקֹּק, incised; Sept. Ι᾿κώκ 5. r. Ι᾿ακανά,Vulg. Hucusa), a town on the border of Naphtali, near Zebulon, not far from Jordan, west of Aznoth-Tabor, and in the direction of Asher (Jos 19:34); elsewhere written HUKOK (חוּקֹק, Chukok', 1Ch 6:75; Sept. Ι᾿ακάκ,.Vulg. Hucac); but probably, in this latter passage, erroneously for HELKATH (Jos 21:35; comp. 19:25). Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Icoc), as well as Benj. of Tudela (2, 421), allude to it. It is doubtless identical with the modern small village Yakuk, between the plain of Genesareth and Safed (Robinson's Researches, 3 App. p. 133; Biblioth. Sac. 1843, p. 80), said to contain the grave of Habakkuk (see new edit. of Researches, 3, 81; and comp. Schwarz, Palestine, p. 182).
