Abstract

It had a population of 260,000. It spoke a language close to Hebrew. Its greatest king bore a name cognate with Eber, the ancestor of the Hebrews (Gen 10:21). It worshipped a god named Ya. Canaanite Ebla-brought back to life in an extraordinary find of 15,000 tablets-seems destined to revolutionize the history of the ancient Near East. One of its two discoverers offers an early report.
