Luke 1:39  (King James Version)
And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda;

Joshua 10:40 ; 15:48-59 21:9-11

This was most probably Hebron, a city of the priests, and situated in the hill country of Judea, ( Joshua 11:21 ; 21:11 13,) about 25 ; miles south of Jerusalem, and nearly 100 ; from Nazareth. Such was the intense desire of Mary's mind to visit and communicate with her relative Elisabeth, that she scrupled not to undertake this long journey to effect her purpose.
