ESHTEMOA

esh-te-mo'-a, esh'-te-mo-a ('eshtemoa`): A Levitical city in the hill country of Judah (Josh 21:14; 1 Ch 6:57); Eshtemoh ('eshtemoh, Josh 15:50). In Ch 4:17,19, Eshtemoa is said to be a Maacathite and "son" of Ishbah. David after routing the Amalekites sent a present to his friends in (among other places) Eshtemoa (1 Sam 30:28). It is now es-Semu`a, a considerable village of evident antiquity some 8 miles South of Hebron.
