Easton's Bible Dictionary

Hethlon:

wrapped up, a place on the north border of Palestine. The "way of Hethlon" (Eze 47:15; 48:1) is probably the pass at the end of Lebanon from the Mediterranean to the great plain of Hamath (q.v.), or the "entrance of Hamath."

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Hethlon:

a fearful dwelling

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Hethlon:

heth'-lon (chethlon; Peshitta chethron): Name of a place associated with Zedad on the ideal northern boundary of Israel, as given in Eze 47:15 and 48:1, but not named in Nu 34:8, while the Septuagint evidently translated the text it had. In accordance with the opinion they hold as to the boundary line of Northern Israel, van Kasteren and Buhl seek to identify Hethlon with ‘Adlun on the river Qasmiyeh. Much more in harmony with the line of the other border towns given is its identification with Heitala to the Northeast of Tripoli. The "way of Hethlon" would then coincide with the Eleutherus valley, between Homs and the Mediterranean, through which the railway now runs, and to this identification the Septuagint seems to give testimony, indicating some path of "descent" from the Biqa'a.

Written by W. M. Christie

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Hethlon:

(hiding‐place) the name of a place on the northern border of Palestine (Ezekiel 47:15; 48:1). In all probability the "way of Hethlon" is the pass at the northern end of Lebanon, and is thus identical with "the entrance of Hamath" in Numbers 34:8, etc.
