Of what importance is Hebron in Scripture?

Judges 1:10 (ESV)

10 And Judah went against the Canaanites who lived in Hebron (now the name of Hebron was formerly Kiriath-arba), and they defeated Sheshai and Ahiman and Talmai.

Eighteen miles south of Jerusalem, twenty-three miles northeast of Beersheba, it was a town where Abraham lived, and was the first capital of David’s monarchy.1 It was also one of the cities that the twelve spies visited (Numbers 13:22).
