Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
HENA . A word occurring in conjunction with Ivvah ( 2Ki 18:34; 2 Kings 19:13 , Isaiah 37:13 ). Both are probably place-names. BÃ¼sching has identified Hena with the modern Ana on the Euphrates; and Sachau supposes that Ivvah is ‘Imm between Aleppo and Antioch. The Targum, however, takes the words as verb-forms, and reads ‘he has driven away and overturned.’ Hommel regards them as divine star-names (cf. Arab. [Note: Arabic.] al-han‘a and al-‘awwÃ¢ ). Cheyne emends the text, striking out Hena , and reading Iwwah as ‘Azzah (= Gaza).
