Ja'reb. (adversary). Jareb is to be explained either as the proper name of a country or person, as a noun in apposition, or as a verb from a root, rub, "to contend, plead". All these senses are represented in the Authorized Version and the marginal readings, Hosea 5:13; Hosea 10:6, and the least preferable has been inserted in the text. Jareb is most probably, the name of some city of Assyria, or another name of the country itself.
