Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Rehoboth-Ir
REHOBOTH-IR (lit. ‘broad places of the city’). One of the four cities in Assyria built by Nimrod ( Genesis 10:11 ). It immediately follows Nineveh, and might mean a suburb of that city, originally separate from it, but later annexed and containing some of its most spacious streets or market-places. A suitable identification has been found in the Assyr. [Note: Assyrian.] rçbît Ninâ (‘broad places of Nineveh’), mentioned by king Esarhaddon (b.c. 681 668). This is the exact equivalent of the Biblical name. In taking it over, ‘the city’ was substituted for ‘Nineveh.’
