What is Beth-horon?
        (house of the cave), the name of two places, the "Upper" and "Nether" Beth-horon, Josh 6:3, 1 Chr 6:5, about 3 miles apart, on the opposite sides of a ravine or steep pass -- the Thermopylae of Palestine -- on the road from Jerusalem to the seacoast. The "Nether" or lower town was the most important; now Beit Ur el-Tahta. The Upper Beth-horon is now Beit Ur el- Fauga.
