CALEB

1. Son of Jephunneh, of the tribe of Judah, who was sent, with one man from each of the other tribes, to search out the promised land, Numbers 13:1-14:45. Of all the twelve, Caleb and Joshua acted the part of true and faithful men; and they only, of all the grown men of Israel, were permitted to enter Canaan, Numbers 14:6-24,38 26:65. He was one of the princes appointed to divide the conquered territory among the tribes, Numbers 34:19. Hebron was given to him as a reward of his fidelity, according to the promise of God, Deuteronomy 1:36 Joshua 14:1-15. Though eighty-five years old, he still retained his vigor, and soon drove out the Anakim from his inheritance. He gave a portion also with his daughter Achsah to Othniel his nephew, who had earned the reward by his valor in the capture of Debir, Joshua 15:13-19 21:12. This region was for some time called by his name, 1 Samuel 30:14.

2. Son of Hor, whose children people the country about Bethlehem, etc., 1 Chronicles 2:50-55.
