AMRAPHEL

(am' ruh fehl) Personal name, probably originally Akkadian, meaning, “the God Amurru paid back” or “the mouth of God has spoken.” King of Shinar or Babylon who joined a coalition to defeat Sodom and Gomorrah, then other kings in Canaan and the Dead Sea area. The kings captured Lot. Hearing the news, Abraham assembled an army, defeated the coalition, and rescued Lot (Genesis 14:1-9). Amraphel cannot be equated with any other king of whom records are available from the Ancient Near East.
