(Heb. Reklah', רֵכָה , hindermost; Sept. ῾Ρηχάβ v. r. ῾Ρηφά ). In 1 Chronicles 4:12, Beth-rapha, Paseah, and Tehinnah the father, or founder, of Ir-nahash, are said to have been "the men of Rechah." In the Targum of R. Joseph they are called "the men of the Great Sanhedrin," the Targumist apparently reading, רִבָּה Schwarz regards it as the name of a place inhabited by the posterity of Judah, and identifies it with "a village Rashsih, three English miles to the south of Hebron" (Palest. p 116).
