("house of Rechob, or room".) A place near the valley containing the town Laish or Dan (Judges 18:28). The modern Hunin, a fortress commanding the plain Huleh in which the city of Dan (Tell el Kady) was. One of Aram's (Syria's) little kingdoms, like Zobah, Maacah, Ishtob; hired by Ammon against David (2 Samuel 10:6; 2 Samuel 10:8). Shortened into Rechob (Numbers 13:21). Being "far from Zidon," it is distinct from the Rehob in Asher, which is not very far from Zidon. Hadadezer king of Zobah was son of Rehob (2 Samuel 8).
