Rabbath of the Children of Ammon

Rab'bath Of The Children Of Ammon, and OF THE AMMONITES. (The former is the more accurate, the Hebrew being in both cases; רִבִּת בּנֵי עִמּוֹן; Sept. ἡ ἄκρα τῶν υἱῶν Α᾿μμών, ῾Ραββὰθ υἱῶν Α᾿μμών; Vulg. Rabbath filiorum Ammon.) This is the full appellation of the place commonly given as RABBAH SEE RABBAH (q.v.). It occurs only in De 3:11 and Eze 21:20. The th is merely the Hebrew "construct state," or mode of connecting a word ending in ah with one followving it. SEE GIBEATH; SEE KIRJATH; SEE RAMATH, etc.
