(delight)(1.) Youngest of the five daughters of Zelophehad (Numbers 26:33; 27:1; 36:11; Joshua 17:3). (B.C. 1450)

(2.) An ancient Canaanite city, whose king is enumerated among those overthrown in the conquest of the country (Joshua 12:24). It reappears as a royal city, the residence of Jeroboam and of his successors (1 Kings 14:17-18) and as the seat of the conspiracy of Menahem ben‐Gaddi against the wretched Shallum (2 Kings 15:16). Its reputation for beauty throughout the country must have been widespread. It is in this sense that it is spoken of in the Song of Solomon. Eusebius mentions it in connection with Menahem, and identifies it with a "village of Samaritans in Batanea." Its site is Telluzah, a place in the mountains north of Nablus.

Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
