Rehob in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE re'-hob (rechobh; Rhoob, Rhaab): (1) Etymologically the word means "broad" and might be applied either to a road or a plain. Rehob is given (Nu 13:21) as the northern limit of Israel as reached by the spies. This agrees with the position assigned to Beth-rehob in the narrative of the settlement of the Danites (Jdg 18:28). It is mentioned again along with the kingdom of Zobah in connection with the wars of Saul (1 Sam 14:47 Septuagint Lag.), and as having been associated with, Zobah and Maacah against David in the Ammonite war and as having been defeated by him (2 Sam 10:6). Robinson sought to identify it with Hunin, but it hardly suits the references. Buhl (GAP, 240) following Thomson (LB, II, 547) seeks it at Paneas (modern Banias). This would suit all the requirements of the capital, Beth-rehob, which might then be the second Rehob, assigned as part of the territory of Sidon to the tribe Asher (Josh 19:28,30; Jdg 18:28). We must, however, assign to the kingdom of Rehob a territory extending from the settlements of the Danites to the "entering in of Hamath" or to Libo (modern Leboue), i.e. the Great Plain of Coele-Syria bounded by Lebanon and Anti-Lebanon and within the limits indicated. (2) Two separate towns belonging to Asher (Josh 19:28; 19:30). One of them was given to the Gershonite Levites (Josh 21:31), and one is mentioned as remaining in the hands of the Canaanites (Jdg 1:31). (3) Father of Hadadezer, king of Aram Zobah, who was overwhelmed by David at the Euphrates (2 Sam 8:3,12). (4) One of the Levites who sealed Nehemiah's covenant on the 24th Tishri, 444 BC (Neh 10:11). W. M. Christie
