Sepharvaim

Sepharvaim (Sef´uhr-vay´im)

A city from which the Assyrian government drew settlers to place on Israelite territory after Israel’s fall to Assyria in 721 BCE (2Kgs 17:24; 2Kgs 17:31). Later references to the city of the same name (2Kgs 18:34; 2Kgs 19:33), whose kings and gods are impotent, may refer to the identical location, but that remains uncertain. (Isa 36:19 and Isa 37:13) contain the same name, but do not clarify the identification.
