Hebrew - Hamath-zobah
HAMATH-ZOBAH

(hay' math-zoh' buh) Place name meaning, “hot place of Zobah.” City Solomon captured in Syria (2 Chronicles 8:3). Both Hamath and Zobah are cities in Syria that David controlled (2 Samuel 8:1). See Hamath; Zobah. Some interpreters see the combination here as the result of a damaged text available to the Chronicler. Others think the Chronicler reflects the Babylonian and Persian administrative system of his day including the two cities in one administrative district. Other think this was simply another name for Zobah. The Chronicler in distinction from 2 Samuel 8:1 also combines the two cities into “Zobah-hamath” (1 Chronicles 18:3 REB, reflecting the literal Hebrew text).
