Hareth

Hareth [N] [S]

thicket, a wood in the mountains of Judah where David hid when pursued by Saul ( 1 Samuel 22:5 ). It was possibly while he was here that the memorable incident narrated in 2Sam 2 Samuel 11:16-19 occurred. This place has not been identified, but perhaps it may be the modern Kharas, on the borders of the chain of mountains some 3 miles east of Keilah.
