Arpad

ARPAD (ar'păd). A town and its surrounding region in the northern part of Syria near Hamath (modern Hamah), with which it is associated in all six biblical references. Rabshakeh, representing Sennacherib before Jerusalem in 701 b.c., boasts that the gods of Arpad could not stand before his master, therefore neither could the Lord deliver Jerusalem (2Kgs.18.34-2Kgs.18.35). In Jeremiah’s time (c. 580) Arpad had lost its power (Jer.49.23).
