[b-hebrew] build/rebuild

I would appreciate some feedback on a statement made to me recently:

"Look at the way 'rebuilt' is used in the Bible, and it's always used of
something which actually still exists."

The context was Ezek 26 and the (re)building of Tyre, but I don't think
that's particularly important.

As I understand it BNH = build or rebuild, and it's translator's privilege
to decide which is appropriate. I don't think the statement is correct.
