(nihb' haz) Deity worshiped by the residents of Avva whom the Assyrians used to resettle the area about Samaria after the fall of that city in 722 B.C. (2 Kings 17:31 ). The deity is otherwise unknown. The name is perhaps a deliberate corruption of the term for altar (Mizbeah ) which had possibly become an object of worship.
