Rabshakeh's enumeration of the monarchies reduced by the King of Assyria terminates with the words "Hena' we-'Iwwah" (2 Kings 19:13; Isaiah 37:13). These two words are supposed by several critics to be the names of two cities, and according to Büsching ("Erdbeschreibung." 11:263,757) it is the city now called "'Anah" by the Arabs, and situated on the Euphrates. F. Hommel, however, takes these two words for names of constellations("Expository Times," April, 1898). The Jewish commentators, as well as the Targum, consider them as two verbs.
