The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Paarai
The Arbite. (See 2 Samuel 23:35) Wherefore so called is not so easy to determine, unless from being born in Arbe, called afterwards Hebron. The founder of Arbe or Hebron was Arbe, as it is probable the city was first possessed by the Anaks, afterwards it was given to Judah in the lot of Caleb. There was a tradition among the Rabbins, as it is related by Jerome in his questions on Genesis, that Arbe, the original name of Hebron, was so called because it means four, and Adam, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were buried there. It is remarkable that Paraac, in 1 Chronicles 11:37, is called Naarai.
