Ataroth

(crowns).

  • One of the towns in the “land of Jazer and land of Gilead,” (Numbers 32:3) east of the Jordan, taken and built by the tribe of Gad. (Numbers 32:34)
  • A place on the (south?) boundary of Ephraim and Manasseh. (Joshua 16:2,7) It is impossible to say whether Ataroth is or is not the same place as
  • ATAROTH-ADAR, or -Addar, on the west border of Benjamin, “near the ’mountain’ that is on the south side of the nether Beth-horon.” (Joshua 16:5; 18:13) Perhaps the modern Atara, six miles northeast of Bethel.
  • “ATAROTH, THE House OF Joab,” a place(?) occurring in the list of the descendants of Judah. (1 Chronicles 2:54)
