Genesis 21:33  (King James Version)
And Abraham planted a grove in Beersheba, and called there on the name of the LORD, the everlasting God.
 


grove
or, tree.
Amos 8:14
The original word {eshel,} has been variously translated a grove, a plantation, an orchard, a cultivated field, and an oak; but it may denote a kind of tamarisk, as it is rendered by Gesenius, the same with the Arabic {athl.}
