He built Elath, and restored it to Judah, after that the king slept with his fathers.

Elath, the la or Elana of the Greek and Roman writers, was a celebrated port situated at the extremity of the eastern branch of the Red Sea, hence called the Elanitic Gulf, ten miles east from Petra, according to Eusebius, and 150 ; Roman miles from Gaza, according to Pliny, but 2 Kings 14:1 2 Kings 14:260 ; stadia, or 157 ; miles, according to Strabo and Marcianus Herecleota. It is now called Akaba, and is nothing but a tower or castle, surrounded by a large grove of date trees, the residence of a governor, dependent on him of Grand Cairo.
