Definitions of Ivah

  1. overturning, a city of the Assyrians, whence colonists were brought to Samaria ( 2 Kings 18:34 ; 19:13 ). It lay on the Euphrates, between Sepharvaim and Henah, and is supposed by some to have been the Ahava of ( Ezra 8:15 ).
  2. ( ruined ), or Ava , which is mentioned in Scripture twice, ( 2 Kings 18:34 ; 19:13 ) comp. Isai 37:13 in connection with Hena and Sepharvaim, and once, ( 2 Kings 17:24 ) in connection with Babylon and Cuthah, must be sought in Babylonia, and is probably identical with the modern Hit, on the Euphrates.
