Zoba, or Zobah

(zoh' buh) City-state name perhaps meaning, “battle.” First Saul (1 Samuel 14:47), then David (2 Samuel 8:3) fought the kings of Zobah. Compare title of Psalms 60:1. Zobah seems to be roughly where Syria later became a nation, northeast of Damascus. It was the leading Syrian power before the rise of Damascus. At one time, the Ammonites hired mercenaries from Zoba (2 Samuel 10:6) to help them fight David. The Ammonites came from the South while the Zobaites came from the North causing David to fight on two fronts. David won, and the people of Zobah served him (2 Samuel 10:13-19). See David; Syria.
