Brown-Driver-Briggs Expanded Definition
 סְפַרְוַ֫יִם proper name, of a location city conquered by king of Assyria; — ׳ס 2 Kings 17:14; 2 Kings 18:34 = סְפַוָ֑יִם Isaiah 36:19, עִיר סְפַרְוָ֑יִם 2 Kings 19:13 = Isaiah 37:13; סְפַרְוָ֑יִם also 2 Kings 17:31 b Qr (Kt. ספרים); ᵐ5 Σεπφαρουαιν, Επφαρουαιμ, etc., ᵐ5 L Σεπφαρειμ; — usually identification with Sippara (on a canal), between Bagdad and Babylon, a city in two parts, Sipp. of Samaš (modern Abbu Habba), and Sipp. of Anunitu(m) on opposed to side of canal, hence dual ׳ס = the two Sipparas Schr COT 2 Kings 17:24, compare Dl Par 209-212 Tiele Geschichte. 88; this recently disputed, in view of mention with Hamath and other northern cities ( 2 Kings 17:24 and especially 2 Kings 18:34), see Hal ZA ii. 401ff. Di Isaiah 36:19 Wkl Alttest, Unters. 101 Benz 2 Kings 17:24 and others, who compare Šabara'in city conquered by Šalmanašarid IV (Wkl in Schr KB ii. 276); but this by no means certain.
