Bath-Rabbim

Additional Links

A term found only once in the Bible (Song of Solomon 7:4), apparently as the name of a gate at or near Heshbon. The passage is obscure; but of the various emendations that have been proposed—by Grätz," Schir ha-Schirim" ("Rabbath Ammon"); by Winckler, "Altorientalische Forschungen," 1:293 et seq. ("Helbon"), and by Cheyne, in "Jew. Quart. Rev." 1899 ("wood of Beth Cerem")—none is entirely satisfactory.
