יוֺבֵל, יֹבֵל noun masculineNumbers 36:4 ram, ram's horn, cornet (Phoenician יבל ram; compare Di Leviticus 25:10 DlPr 124) — absolute יוֺבֵל Joshua 6:5 7t.; יֹבֵל Exodus 19:13 13t.; plural יוֺבְלִים Joshua 6:4 2t.; יֹבְלִים Joshua 6:13; —

1 ram, only in combination: ׳בִּמְשֹׁךְ בְּקֶרֶן הַיּ Joshua 6:5 the ram's horn, as wind-instrument; so שׁוֺפְרוֺת(ה)י(ו)בלים Joshua 6:4,6,8,13 rams' horns (see BenzArchäol. 276); יֹבֵל alone, בִּמְשֹׁךְ הַיֹּבֵל Exodus 19:13 at the sounding of the ram ('s horn).

2 designation of 50th year, marked by blowing of cornets, AV 'jubile' (so Late Hebrew יוֺבֵל, ᵑ7 יובֵילָא, as loan-word); originally no doubt שְׁנַת הַיּוֺבֵל year of the ram ('s horn), as Leviticus 25:13,28,40,50,52,54 (all H), Leviticus 27:17,18,23,24 (all P), but then, without שׁנת, as יוֺבֵל הִוא תִּהְיֶה לָכֶם Leviticus 25:10 a ram ('s horn blowing) shall it be to you; so Leviticus 25:11; Leviticus 25:12; Leviticus 25:15; Leviticus 25:28; Leviticus 25:30; Leviticus 25:31; Leviticus 25:33 (all H), Leviticus 27:18; Numbers 36:4 (both P).

jubile, ram's horn, trumpet

Or yobel {yob-ale'}; apparently from yabal; the blast of a horn (from its continuous sound); specifically, the signal of the silver trumpets; hence, the instrument itself and the festival thus introduced -- jubile, ram's horn, trumpet.

see HEBREW yabal
