Hebrew - Argob
ARGOB

(ahr' gahb) Personal and geographical name meaning, “mound of earth.” 1. Man who joined Pekah (2 Kings 15:25) in murdering Pekahiah, king of Israel (742-740 B.C.). The Hebrew text is difficult to read at this point. Some scholars omit Argob as a copyists' error duplicating part of 2 Kings 15:29 here (TEV). NIV translation can be interpreted to mean Pekah also killed Argob. 2. A territory in Bashan in the hill country east of the Jordan River. Argob was probably in the center of the fertile tableland and was famous for its strong cities (Deuteronomy 3:4). Moses gave this land of giants to Manasseh (Deuteronomy 3:13). Manasseh's son Jair conquered Argob (Deuteronomy 3:14) and changed the name to Bashan-havoth-jair.
