Hobah (Hebrew: חובה‎) was a biblical place mentioned only in Genesis 14:15 signified as the place that Abraham (then Abram) rescued his nephew Lot.[1] He pursued the four Kings who had pillaged Sodom and Gomorrah. It is said to be North of Damascus in the Bible. It was the aftermath of the Battle of Siddim and although places have been suggested regarding the present location of Hobah, it is unknown.[2]
