Jeshua (2)

For this Biblical site Lieut-Conder proposes (Tent Work, 2:338) the ruin and tell es-Saweh, four and a quarter miles north-west of Tell-Milh (Moladah), which is thus described in the Memoirs accompanying the Ordnance Survey (3:409): "A prominent hill-top, crowneds with ruins, consisting of foundations and heaps of stones. The hill is surrounded by a wall built of large blocks of flint conglomerate. Other rocks of a similar kind exist in the valley beneath." The place proposed by Schwarz is probably Eshuia, one and a half miles north-east of Surah (Zorah), and two and a quarter south-west of Kesla (Chesalon), "a small village near the foot of the hill, with a well to the west, and olive-trees beneath" (Memoirs to Ordnance Survey, 3:25); but this is probably Eshtaol (q.v.).
