(2 Samuel 12:30 , Heb., RSV, "their king;" Jeremiah 49:1,3 , RSV; Zephaniah 1:5 ), the national idol of the Ammonites. When Rabbah was taken by David, the crown of this idol was among the spoils. The weight is said to have been "a talent of gold" (above 100 lbs.). The expression probably denotes its value rather than its weight. It was adorned with precious stones.
