Anathoth

D11 on the Map

Anathoth in Smiths Bible Dictionary - a priests' city belonging to the tribe of Benjamin, with "suburbs." Jos 21:18; 1Ch 6:60 Anathoth lay about three miles from Jerusalem. Isa 10:30 The cultivation of the priests survives in tilled fields of grain, with figs and olives. There are the remains of walls and strong foundations, and the quarries still supply Jerusalem with building stones. http://www.bible-history.com/smiths/A/Anathoth+(2)/

Ras el-Kharrubeh. Anata. Anathoth was a town in the tribe of Benjamin belonging to the priests, also a city of refuge (Josh 21:18; Jer 1:1). It is chiefly mentioned as the birthplace of the prophet Jeremiah, and also his home (Jer 1:1; 11:21-23; 29:27).

It was a walled town of some strength, seated on a broad ridge of hills and overlooking the valley of the Jordan and the northern part of the Dead Sea. It was 3 miles NE of Jerusalem.

Modern research identifies the present Anata with Anathoth, 3 miles distance from Jerusalem, containing about 100 inhabitants. See 2 Sam 23:27; 1 Chron 12:3; Ezra 2:23; Neh 7:27.

City of Benjamin, Levitical city, Josh. 21. 18; home of Jeremiah, Jer. 1. 1; Neh. 7. 27
