Adoraim [N] [H]

(double mound ), a fortified city built by Rehoboam, ( 2 Chronicles 11:9 ) in Judah. Adoraim is probably the same place with Adora, 1Ma 13:20 unless that be Dor, on the seacoast below Carmel. Robinson identifies it with Dura , a "large village" on a rising ground west of Hebron.

ADORAIM

ad-o-ra'-im ('adhorayim, "a pair of knolls," perhaps):

One of several cities in Judah that were fortified by Rehoboam (2 Chronicles 11:9). The name appears in Josephus and in 1 Macc as Adora or Dora or Dor. Its location is indicated in general by that of the other cities which the record in Chronicles groups with it. Common consent identifies it with Dura, about five miles West by South of Hebron.
