the name of two cities, both in the lowlands of Judah: (1) named between Zoreah and Zanoah, and therefore probably northwest of Jerusalem, ( Joshua 15:33 ) and (2) between Jiptah and Nezib, and therefore to the southwest of Jerusalem. ( Joshua 15:43 ) Each, according, to Robinsons map (1857), would be about 16 miles from Jerusalem.
(1) Joshua 15:33, a site in the lowlands of Judah, probably near Estaol and Zorah. The small ruin Aslin between those two places may retain an echo of the old name;
(2) Joshua 15:43 an unknown site farther south.
