Jubal (also Yuval or Yubal; Hebrew: Yl) is a man mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, in Genesis 4:21. Known as the father of all who play the harp and flute, Jubal is the brother of Jabal and the half-brother of Tubal-cain and half-brother of his half-sister Naamah.


Jubal was a descendant of Cain, the son of Lamech and Adah, and the brother of Jabal, and half-brother of Tubal-cain and Naamah. Jubal is described as the "ancestor of all who played the harp and flute."


Jubal is said to have played the ? ("Kinnor", translated "harp" in the NIV and "lyre" in the ESV) and the ? ("Uggab", translated "flute" in the NIV and "pipe" in the ESV). Gordon Wenham suggests that the latter may have been a "reed or a Pan's pipe."[1]
