Shallecheth

Shallecheth [N]

(overthrow ), The gate, one of the gates of the "house of Jehovah." ( 1 Chronicles 26:16 ) It was the gate "to the causeway of the ascent." As the causeway is actually in existence, the gate Shallecheth can hardly fail to be identical with the Bab Silsileh or Sinsleh which enters the west wall of the Haram about 600 feet from the southwest corner of the Haram wall.


[N] indicates this entry was also found in Nave's Topical Bible
