This place in ancient Israel (See History of ancient Israel and Judah) was apparently conquered by Solomon and thus figuring in his only military engagement alluded to in the Bible (2 Chr 8:3). Its exact location is uncertain.

Hamath and Zobah were likely adjoining kingdoms, whence the compound name "Hamath-Zobah", an idea supported by mention of wars between Hadadezer of Zobah and Toi of Hamath in 2 Samuel 9-10.

Some or all of this article is forked from Wikipedia. The original article was at Hamath-zobah. The list of authors can be seen in the page history.
