Concise Bible Dictionary:

2. Name given by Hiram king of Tire to the twenty cities in Galilee given him by Solomon, because he was displeased with them (1 Kings 9:1313And he said, What cities are these which thou hast given me, my brother? And he called them the land of Cabul unto this day. (1 Kings 9:13)). Josephus says (Ant. 8. 5, 3) that the meaning of the term in the Phoenician tongue was “what does not please.” Apparently Hiram returned them to Solomon (2 Chron. 8:22That the cities which Huram had restored to Solomon, Solomon built them, and caused the children of Israel to dwell there. (2 Chronicles 8:2)).
