el-`Azariyeh. `Bethania', Gk. form of Beth-ananiah, i.e. O.T. Ananiah. Bethany "house, place of unripe figs" is a village located on the E slope of Mt. Olivet, about one and one-half miles from Jerusalem. It was called also the house of misery on account of its lonely situation and the invalids who congregated there. It was the home of Lazarus and was associated with important events in Scripture history. Home of Martha, Mary, and Lazarus, and of Simon the Leper, Matt. 26:6; Jesus lodged there, Matt. 21:17; scene of the Ascension, Luke 24:50.

It is now called Azariyeh, or Lazariyeh, "the place of Lazarus."
