Bible Cities: Rehoboth
Rehoboth Well in the Bible

Map of Ancient Rehoboth


Rehoboth in Easton's Bible Dictionary broad places. (1.) A well in Gerar dug by Isaac (Gen. 26:22), supposed to be in Wady er-Ruheibeh, about 20 miles south of Beersheba. (2.) An ancient city on the Euphrates (Gen. 36:37; 1 Chr. 1:48), "Rehoboth by the river." (3.) Named among the cities of Asshur (Gen. 10:11). Probably, however, the words "rehoboth'ir" are to be translated as in the Vulgate and the margin of A.V., "the streets of the city," or rather "the public square of the city", i.e., of Nineveh.

Rehoboth in Fausset's Bible Dictionary ("room, broad space".) Third of Isaac's wells, called so because after that the wells Esek ("contention") and Sitnah ("hatred"), which his men had dug, the Gerar herdsmen would not let him keep peaceably, now at last his good has overcome their evil, and God makes room for him. Spiritually Romans 12:18-21; Genesis 32:20; Genesis 13:7-9; Matthew 5:25; Revelation 15:2; John 14:2. In the wady er Ruhaibeh are ruins of a large city, eight hours S. of Beersheba, and an ancient well, 12 ft. in circumference, built with hewn stone, now filled up (Robinson Phys. Geog., 243; "Our Work in Israel," 299). Its site is marked by fallen masonry, seemingly a cupola roof of well cemented brick shaped stones. At hand is Shutnet, the "Sitnah" of Scripture: Rehoboth lies 20 miles S.W. of Bir es Seba or Beersheba, with three remaining wells, two full of water, one dry.

Rehoboth in Smiths Bible Dictionary (wide places, i.e. streets). 1. The third of the series of wells dug by Isaac, Ge 26:22 in the Philistines' territory, lately identified as er- Ruheibeh, 16 miles south of Beersheba. 2. One of the four cities built by Asshur, or by Nimrod in Asshur, according as this difficult passage is translated. Ge 10:11 Nothing certain is known of its position. 3. The city of a certain Saul or Shaul, one of the early kings of the Edomites. Ge 36:37; 1Ch 1:48 The affix "by the river" fixes the situation of Rehoboth as on the Euphrates.

Rehoboth in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE re-ho'-both, re-ho'-both (rehobhoth, "broad places"; Euruchoria): One of the wells dug by Isaac (Gen 26:22). It is probably the Rubuta of the Tell el-Amarna Letters (Petrie, numbers 256, 260; see also The Expository Times, XI, 239 (Konig), 377 (Sayce)), and it is almost certainly identical with the ruin Ruchaibeh, 8 hours Southwest of Beersheba. Robinson (BR, I, 196-97) describes the ruins of the ancient city as thickly covering a "level tract of 10 to 12 acres in extent"; "many of the dwellings had each its cistern, cut in the solid rock"; "once this must have been a city of not less than 12,000 or 15,000 inhabitants. Now it is a perfect field of ruins, a scene of unutterable desolation, across which the passing stranger can with difficulty find his way." Huntington (Israel and Its Transformation, 124) describes considerable remains of a suburban population extending both to the North and to the South of this once important place.
