JESHUA

jesh'-u-a, je-shu'-a (yeshua`): A place occupied by the children of Judah after their return from captivity (Neh 11:26), evidently, from the places named with it, in the extreme South of Judah. It may correspond with the Shema of Josh 15:26, and possibly to the Sheba of 19:2. The site may be Khirbet Sa`weh, a ruin upon a prominent hill, Tell es Sa`weh, 12 miles East-Northeast of Beersheba. The hill is surrounded by a wall of large blocks of stone. PEF, III, 409-10, Sh XXV.
