skul (gulgoleth; kranion): The Hebrew word, which is well known to Bible readers in its Aramaic-Greek form "Golgotha," expresses the more or less globular shape of the human skull, being derived from a root meaning "to roll." It is often translated in English Versions of the Bible by "head," "poll," etc. In the meaning "skull" it is found twice (Judges 9:53 2 Kings 9:35). In the New Testament the word is found only in connection with GOLGOTHA (which see), "the place of a skull" (Matthew 27:33 Mark 15:22 John 19:17), or "the skull" (Luke 23:33).
