thicket, a wood in the mountains of Judah where David hid when
pursued by Saul (1 Sam. 22:5). It was possibly while he was here
that the memorable incident narrated in 2 Sam. 23:14-17, 1 Chr.
11:16-19 occurred. This place has not been identified, but
perhaps it may be the modern Kharas, on the borders of the chain
of mountains some 3 miles east of Keilah.
