What is Zelzah?
        (shade from the sun), a place in Benjamin not far from Rachel's tomb. 1 Sam 10:2; identified by several writers (although Grove disputes the identification) with the little village of Biet Jala about a mile west of Rachel's tomb and 3 miles south-west of Jerusalem. Perhaps Zelah was the same place.
