Arab

A'rab (Heb. Arab', אֲרָב, ambush; Sept. Ε᾿ρέβ v. r. Αἰρέμ), a city in the mountains of Judah, mentioned in connection with Golon and Dumah (Jos 15:52), whence probably the Gentile ARBITE (2Sa 23:35). According to Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Ereb) it lay south of Daroma, and was then called Eremittytha (Euseb. Ε᾿ρέμινθα). Schwarz (Palest. p. 105) says it is the village al-Arab, situated on a mountain four English miles south-east of Hebron; but other authorities make no mention of such a place, and the associated names require a locality rather to the west of Hebron (Keil, Comment. on Joshua in loc.), possibly the ruined site el- Hadb at the foot of a hill south-west of Dura (Robinson, Researches, 3, 5).
