Anathoth

Additional Links

A town in the territory of Benjamin in Palestine, included among the original Levitical cities (Joshua 21:18; compare 1 Chronicles 6:60). It has been identified by Robinson with the modern village 'Anâta, about two and one-half miles northeast of Jerusalem. It was the home of Abiathar (1 Kings, 2:26) and of Jeremiah, the prophet (Jeremiah 1:1). It was also probably one of the towns occupied by the exiles who returned from captivity. Its importance was due largely to its superior commanding elevated location. See ANATH (2).
