Beeroth [EBD]

wells, one of the four cities of the Hivites which entered by fraud into a league with Joshua. It belonged to Benjamin (Josh. 18:25). It has by some been identified with el-Bireh on the way to Nablus, 10 miles north of Jerusalem.

BEEROTH
1. A station of the Israelites. Aaron died at, Deut. 10:6.
See: Bene-jaakan.

BEEROTH [SMITH]

(wells), one of the four cities of the Hivites who deluded Joshua into a treaty of peace with them. (Joshua 9:17) It is now el-Bireh , which stands about 10 miles north of Jerusalem.

BEEROTH [ISBE]

BEEROTH - be-e'-roth, be'-er-oth (be'eroth; Beroth): One of the cities of the Canaanites whose inhabitants succeeded in deceiving Israel, and in making a covenant with them (Josh 9:3 ff). Apparently they were Hivites (Josh 9:7). The occasion on which the Beerothites fled to Gittaim where they preserved their communal identity is not indicated. The town was reckoned to Benjamin (2 Sam 4:2 f). Eusebius, Onomasticon places it under Gibeon, 7 Roman miles from Jerusalem on the way to Nicopolis (Amwas). If we follow the old road by way of Gibeon (el-Jib) and Bethhoron, Beeroth would lie probably to the Northwest of el-Jib. The traditional identification is with el-Bireh, about 8 miles from Jerusalem on the great north road. If the order in which the towns are mentioned (Josh 9:17; 18:25) is any guide as to position, el-Bireh is too far to the Northwest. The identification is precarious. To Beeroth belonged the murderers of Ish-bosheth (2 Sam 4:2), and Naharai, Joab's armor-bearer (2 Sam 23:37; 1 Ch 11:39). It was reoccupied after the Exile (Ezr 2:25; Neh 7:29).
