(Heb. Beyth-Rechob', בֵּיתאּרְחוֹב , House Of Rehob; Sept. Οϊ v Κος ῾Ροώβ [v. r. ῾Ραάβ ] and Βαιθροώβ [v. r. ῾Ροώβ , Βαιθραάμ , and even Τώβ ]), a place mentioned as having near it the valley in which lay the town of Laish or Dan ( Judges 18:28). It was one of the little kingdoms of Aram or Syria, like Zobah, Maachah, and Ish-tob, in company with which it was hired by the Ammonites to fight against David ( 2 Samuel 10:6). (See Aram). In  2 Samuel 10:8 the name occurs in the shorter form of Rehob, in which form it is doubtless again mentioned in  Numbers 13:21. Being, however, "far from Sidon" ( Judges 18:28), this place must not be confounded with two towns of the name of Rehob in the territory of Asher. (See Rehob). Robinson conjectures ( Later Researches, p. 371) that this ancient place is represented by the modern Hunin, a fortress commanding the plain of the Huleh, in which the city of Dan (Tell el-Kady) lay. (See Caesarea-Philippi). Hadadezer, the king of Zobah, is said to have been the son of Rehob ( 2 Samuel 8:3;  2 Samuel 8:12). Smith.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [5]

beth - rē´hob ( בּית־רחוב , bēth - reḥōbh  ; ὁ οῖκος Ῥαάβ , ho oı́kos Rhaáb ) : An Aramean town and district which, along with Zobah and Maacah, assisted Ammon against David ( 2 Samuel 10:6 ,  2 Samuel 10:8 , Rehob). It is probably identical with Rehob ( Numbers 13:21 ), the northern limit of the spies' journey. Laish-Dan (probably Tell el - Kadi ) was situated near it ( Judges 18:28 ). The site of the town is unknown. It has been conjecturally identified with Hunin, West of Banias, and, more plausibly, with Banias itself (Thomson, The Land and the Book (2), 218; Buhl, Geog ., 240; Moore, ICC , Jgs, 399).
