Hamath

An important city of Syria, in the valley of the Orontes; the “entering in of Hamath” was the northern limit of the Promised Land (Num. 34:8; Josh. 13:5). Toi, king of Hamath, was on friendly terms with David (2 Sam. 8:10). The city seems to have come under the dominion of Solomon (1 Kgs. 4:21–24; 2 Chr. 8:4). It was afterwards taken by the Assyrians (2 Kgs. 14:28). It is still a town of considerable importance.
