MAKTESH. The name of a locality mentioned only in Zephaniah 1:11 as ‘the PhÅ“nician quarter’ (?) of Jerusalem. The word denotes a mortar , and presumably was given to the place because it was basin-shaped. If so, a part of the TyropÅ“on valley has as good a claim as any other locality to be regarded as what is referred to. Certainly the Mt. of Olives is but a precarious conjecture.

W. F. Cobb.
