Reference: Elath


An important Edomite town on the N.E. arm of the Red Sea, near Ezion-geber. It is mentioned as one of the places passed by the Israelites during their wanderings (De 2:8). Close to it king Solomon's navy was constructed (1Ki 9:26). Subsequently the town must have been destroyed, as we read in 2Ki 14:22 of its being built by Azariah. Later on it was conquered by the Edomites (so Revised Version margin).
