(hay' ruh) Place name of uncertain meaning. City or region in northern Mesopotamia where, according to 1 Chronicles 5:26 , the Assyrians under Tiglath-pileser settled some of the exiles from east of the Jordan in the Northern Kingdom in 734 B.C. The name does not occur in the parallel passages (1 Kings 17:6 ; 1 Kings 18:11 ). The scribe copying Chronicles may have copied part of the Hebrew word for either Habor or for river a second time in a way later generations made into the name Hara. The accounts in 1Kings place the exile to these cities in 722 B.C.
