Pearl of Great Price PN 1. KOKOB “star” Abraham 3:13.

Hebrew kōkāb “star” (Arabic al-kawkab), Akkadian kukkabū ( Sumerian MÚL). Indeed, circa 1,500 B.C. - 300 A.D. circumpolar KochabUrsae Minoris, magnitude 2.08) was the North Star closest to the “center” of the night sky (then at declination 83̊.5) – a position now occupied by Polaris (α Ursae Minoris).[1]

The word kōkāb is attested 37 times in the HEBREW Bible, usually plural, except in Numbers 24:17 and Amos 5:26
