2 Chronicles 11:6

2 Chronicles 11:6

He built even Bethlehem
The place of our Lord's birth, about six miles from Jerusalem:

and Etam;
another city in the tribe of Judah; see ( 1 Chronicles 4:32 ) , there was a rock of this name, ( Judges 15:8 ) and a fountain from whence waters were conveyed into the pool at Jerusalem, spoken of in Jewish writings {b}:

and Tekoah;
of which place Amos the prophet was, and which was about twelve miles from Jerusalem. Rauwolff F3 speaks of it as a fortified place now; he says it has a strong and mighty castle, built on a great and high hill.
