Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

רִבְלָה (“fertility”), [Riblah], pr.n. of a town at the northern border of Palestine, in the land of Hamath, which the Babylonians, both in their incursions and in returning, were accustomed to pass. Traces of it which were previously unknown, appear to me to be found in the town Reblah, situated eight [forty] miles south of Hamath, on the Orontes, mentioned by Buckingham (Travels among the Arab tribes, London, 1825, iv. p. 481), Numbers 34:11; 2 Kings 23:33, 25:6 Jeremiah 39:5, 52:10.
