Beth-marcaboth [NAVE]

A town of Simeon, Josh. 19:5; 1 Chr. 4:31.
Probably identical with Madmaah, Josh. 15:31.


BETH-MAACAH - beth-ma'-a-ka.



BETH-MARCABOTH - beth-mar'-ka-both (beth ha-markabhoth; Baithmachereb, "the house of chariots"): Mentioned along with Hazar-susah, "the station of horses" (Josh 19:5; 1 Ch 4:31) as cities in the Negeb near Ziklag. It is tempting to connect these stations with "the cities for his chariots, and the cities for his horsemen" which Solomon built (1 Ki 9:19; compare 1 Ki 10:26). The site of Beth-marcaboth has not been identified, but Guerin (La Terre Sainte. Jerusalem et le Nord de la Judee, II, 230) suggests Khan Yunas , Southwest of Gaza, as a suitable chariot city.
