A city of Syria, in the country of Hamath, at the north-east extremity of Canaan, Numbers 34:11 . Its site is probably found in the modern village Ribleh, on the river Orontes, at the northern end of the great valley of Lebanon, El-Bukaa.. Through this valley, by way of Hamath and Riblah, was the readiest access to Palestine from the north. At Riblah king Jehoahaz was taken and deposed by Pharaoh- necho; here also Nebuchadnezzar established his headquarters when warring against Judah, 2 Kings 23:33; 25:6,20,21; Jeremiah 39:5; 52:10 .
