What is Moladah?
(birth), a city in the South of Judah, Josh 15:21-26; given to Simeon, and occupied by Shimei, Josh 19:2; 1 Chr 4:28; settled after the Captivity, Neh 11:26. Probably el-Milh, 10 miles east of Beersheba, marks the site of ancient Moladah. There are ruins of a fortified town, two wells, one with water at the depth of 40 feet; and the wells are surrounded with marble troughs. Arab tradition says that Abraham dug these wells and watered his flocks here.
