Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
Ἱεριχώ Hierichṓ, hee-er-ee-kho'; of Hebrew origin (H3405); Jericho, a place in Palestine:—Jericho.
Ἱεριχώ (Tdf. Ἱερειχώ [see his Proleg., p. 85; WH's Appendix, p. 155, and under the word ει, ι; WH Ἰερ. see their Introductory § 408; on its accent in manuscripts cf. Tdf. Proleg., p. 103]), , indeclinable (on its declension in other writings cf. Winers Grammar § 10, 2; in Strabo Ἱερικούς -οῦντος; Ἱεριχοῦς, -οῦντος in Josephus, cf. Winer's Grammar, the passage cited; Hebrew יְרִיחו, from רִיחַ, to smell, so called from its fertility in aromatics), Jericho, a noted city, abounding in balsam [i. e. perhaps the opobalsamum; cf. Tristram, Nat. Hist. etc., p. 337; B. D. under the word Balm], honey, cyprus [probably Arabic "el-henna"; cf. Tristram as above, under the word Camphire], myrobalanus [Arabic "zukkum"], roses, and other fragrant productions. It was situated not far from the northern shore of the Dead Sea, in the tribe of Benjamin, between the city of Jerusalem and the river Jordan, 150 stadia from the former and 60 from the latter. Josephus, b. j. 4, 8, 3 calls its territory θεῖον χωρίον. It is mentioned in the N. T. in Matthew 20:29; Mark 10:46; Luke 10:30; Luke 18:35; Luke 19:1; Hebrews 11:30. As balsam was exported thence to other countries, we read Luke 19:2 that τελῶναι were stationed there, with an ἀρχιτελώνης, for the purpose of collecting the revenues. For a fuller account of the city see Winers RWB, under the word; Arnold in Herzog vi., p. 494f; Furrer in Schenkel iii., 209f; Keim, iii., 17f [English translation, 5:21f; BB. DD. under the word; cf. also Robinson, Researches etc. i. 547ff].
