Arieh
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A coconspirator with or a victim of Pekah in the assassination of Pekahiah, king of Israel (2 Kgs 15:25). The Hebrew text is uncertain, and Arieh (along with Argob) could be a place name that belongs in 2 Kgs 15:29 but was accidentally inserted in 2 Kgs 15:25 instead when the scribe’s eyes skipped between mentions of Gilead.
