What is Jareb?
        (an adversary). The marginal reading would indicate that it was the name of a place, but that is forbidden by the form of the original word. Hos 5:13; Neh 10:6. Some make it the name of a king, but it is better to translate it "the hostile king" -- i.e. "the king of Assyria."
