Bath-rab'bim (Heb. Bath-rabbim', בִּתאּרִבַּים daughter of many; Sept. translates literally θυγατὴρ τολλῶν), the name of one of the gates of the ancient city of Heshbon, by (עִל) which were two "pools," to which Solomon likens the eyes of his beloved (Song 7:4 [5]). The "Gate of Bath- rabbim" at Heshbon would, according to the Oriental custom, be the gate pointing to a town of that name. The only place in this neighborhood at all resembling Bath-rabbim in sound is Rabbah (Amman), but the one tank of which we gain any intelligence as remaining at Heshbon is on the opposite (S.) side of the town to Amman (Porter, Handbook, p. 298).
