Bible Cities: Chebar
Ancient Chebar

Chebar in Easton's Bible Dictionary length, a river in the "land of the Chaldeans" (Ezek. 1:3), on the banks of which were located some of the Jews of the Captivity (Ezek. 1:1; 3:15, 23; 10:15, 20, 22). It has been supposed to be identical with the river Habor, the Chaboras, or modern Khabour, which falls into the Euphrates at Circesium. To the banks of this river some of the Israelites were removed by the Assyrians (2 Kings 17:6). An opinion that has much to support it is that the "Chebar" was the royal canal of Nebuchadnezzar, the Nahr Malcha, the greatest in Mesopotamia, which connected the Tigris with the Euphrates, in the excavation of which the Jewish captives were probably employed.

Chebar in Fausset's Bible Dictionary A river of Chaldaea, where Ezekiel saw his earlier visions (Ezekiel 1:1; Ezekiel 1:3; Ezekiel 3:15; Ezekiel 3:23). Nebuchadnezzar had planted many of the captives taken with Jehoiachin there (2 Kings 24:15). The Habor or river of Gozan, where the Assyrians planted the Israelites (2 Kings 17:6), is conjectured to be the same. The Greek Chaboras. It flows into the Euphrates at Circesium. But the name Chaldaea does not reach so far N. More probably the Chebar is the nahr Malcha, Nebuchadnezzar's royal canal, the greatest (chabeer means great) in Mesopotamia. The captives may have been made to excavate the channel. Tradition places Ezekiel's tomb at Keffil, which favors our placing Chebar in Chaldaea, rather than upper Mesopotamia.

Chebar in Smiths Bible Dictionary (length), a river in the "land of the Chaldeans." Eze 1:3; 3:15,23 etc. It is commonly regarded as identical with the Habor, 2Ki 17:6 and perhaps the Royal Canal of Nebuchadnezzar, --the greatest of all the cuttings in Mesopotamia.

Chebar in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ke'-bar (kebhar, "joining" (Young), "length" (Strong); Chobar): The river by the side of which his first vision was vouchsafed to Ezekiel (1:1). It is described as in "the land of the Chaldeans," and is not, therefore, to be sought in northern Mesopotamia. This rules out the Habor, the modern Chabour, with which it is often identified. The two names are radically distinct: chabhor could not be derived from kebhar. One of the great Babylonian canals is doubtless intended. Hilprecht found mention made of (naru) kabaru, one of these canals large enough to be navigable, to the East of Nippur, "in the land of the Chaldeans." This "great canal" he identifies with the rood. shaTT en-Nil, in which probably we should recognize the ancient Chebar.
