(hay' luh) City-state or region in northern Mesopotamia to which Assyrians exiled some leaders of the Northern Kingdom after capturing Samaria in 722 B.C. (2 Kings 17:6 ). Some Bible students think the original text of Obadiah 1:20 contained a promise for the captives in Halah. They read the Hebrew word for “host” as Halah. Halah may have been Hallahhu, northeast of Nineveh.
