Ancient and modern Habur (Khabur), a major tributary of the Euphrates River, which it enters from the northeast below modern Deir ez-Zor. The Habor was a major route in antiquity and was densely settled. In the OT the Habor is called the river of Gozan and is named as one of the places to which the Israelites were exiled in 722 BCE (2Kgs 17:6; 2Kgs 18:11; 1Chr 5:26).
