Transcript ^— KHUREITUN. H5 are indeed in a labyrinth. What seemed from Frank Mountain to be continuous ranges, on closer acquaintance prove to be seamed on all sides diagonally with mountain torrent beds, leaving blocks rather than ridges standing between valleys of soft white marl sprinkled with flints, and the pebbly watershed (now, of course, dry) in the centre. Here trees never can have grown, and the expression "wood of Ziph " ought rather to be rendered "thickets." In tracing this theatre of some of the most eventful scenes of David's early life, we have still the Tell Zif to fix the locality. David's earliest refuge after his flight from the court of Achish was the Cave of Adullam, which, as we have noted, was on the western slopes of POOLS OF SOLOMON. Now called El Burak—the tanks. The castle above them is occupied by a few soldiers for protection against the Bedouins. the central mountain range, guarding the rich corn valley of Elah. Thence he moved south to Keilah on the same range, and then crossed to the neighbourhood of Ziph, where he had his interview with Jonathan. Close to Ziph, Lieut. Conder has discovered the ruins of Khoreisa and the valley of Hiresh, which exactly answer to the Hebrew word rendered " wood " in our Bible. Then again, by the treachery of the men of Ziph, David had to fly to the wilderness (Jashimon), i.e. the great desert plateau we have been describing above the shores of the Dead Sea. The hill Hachilah, his stronghold, is by Lieut. Conder placed at El Kolah, where the hilly desert and the southern wilderness meet; and it is curious to note that some caves on the north side of the hill retain the name of the " Caves of the 20
