Ataroth

Additional Links

At´aroth. Several places of this name (which means crowns) occur in the Scriptures.

1. Ataroth-beth-Joab, in the tribe of Judah (1 Chronicles 2:54).

2. Ataroth, on the borders of Ephraim (Joshua 16:2; Joshua 16:7), which some identify with, and others distinguish from, the Ataroth-Addar of the same tribe mentioned in Joshua 16:5; Joshua 18:13.

3. Ataroth, in the tribe of Gad, beyond the Jordan (Numbers 32:3; Numbers 32:34).

4. Ataroth-Shophan, in the same tribe (Numbers 32:35), which some identify with the preceding; but it appears more likely that the addition was used to distinguish the one from the other.
