Reference: Ahava


AHAVA was a settlement in Babylonia lying along a stream of the same name, probably a large canal near the Euphrates. None of the conjectures as to the exact locality can be verified. It was here that Ezra mustered his people before their departure for Jerusalem (Ezr 8:15,21,31). Some district north or north-west of Babylon, near the northern boundary of Babylonia, is most probable.

J. F. McCurdy.
