Reference: Etam, The Rock
E'tam, The rock,
a cliff or lofty rock, into a cleft or chasm of which Samson retired after his slaughter of the Philistines.
This natural stronghold was in the tribe of Judah; and near it, probably at its foot, were Lehi and Ramath-lehi and Enhakkore.
The name Etam was held by a city in the neighborhood of Bethlehem,
which is known to have been situated in the extremely uneven and broken country round the modern Urtas.
