Dictionary

Holman Bible Dictionary - Cuth
(cuhth), CUTHAH Place names with two spellings in Hebrew and English. Cuthah was the center of worship of Nergal, god of death in Mesopotamia. See 2 Kings 17:24 ). Once settled, they made an idol to worship Nergal (2 Kings 17:30 ), thus aggravating the tendency to worship Yahweh of Israel along with other gods. Cuth was located at tell Ibrahim, about 18 miles northeast of Babylon.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Cuth, Cuthah
CUTH, CUTHAH . One of the cities from which Sargon brought colonists to take the place of the Israelites whom he had deported from Samaria, b.c. 722 ( 2 Kings 17:24 ; 2 Kings 17:30 ). These colonists intermingled with the Israelite inhabitants who were left by Sargon; and their descendants, the Samaritans, were in consequence termed by the Jews ‘Cuthæans.’ According to the old Arabic geographers, Cuthah was situated not far from Babylon. This view is borne out by the Assyrian inscriptions, from which we learn that Kuti (or Kutu ) was a city of Middle-Babylonia. It has now been identified with the modern Tell Ibrâhim , N.E. of Babylon, where remains of the temple of Nergal (cf. 2 Kings 17:30 ) have been discovered.
