[the proper name is pronounced Ke´rub] (Hebrews Kerub´; כּרוּב, etymolygy uncertain; Sept. Χερούβ v. r. Χαρούβ and Χαρήβ; Vulg. Cherub), a place apparently in the Babylonian dominions, associated with Tel-harsa, Addan, etc., from which some Jewish exiles returned with Zerubbabel, who had lost their pedigree (Ezr 2:59; Ne 7:61). The true construction of these names, however, would rather make this to be that of a man thus unregistered. B.C. 536. SEE ADDON.
