Transcript SH'AFAT. 215 notables, whom the conqueror received so courteously. It was here that Titus fixed his camp at Scopus, the place whence the great walls and golden facade of the Temple were first clearly seen. It was in this stony slope that the first Crusaders languished under the fierce summer sun, laboriously constructing their wooden towers with materials foraged from a great distance, while man and beast died daily in camp from want of water and of food. The village immediately to the north is now called Sh'afat, and the name is said by the inhabitants to have been that of a king of Jerusalem—evidently Jehosaphat, as the Arabic word contains all the radical letters of that monarch's name. In the twelfth and fourteenth RUINS OF CRUSADERS' CHURCH AT EL BIREH, THE ANCIENT BEEROTH. Nothing is left of this building but its three apses, the north wall, and a fragment of the south wall. The space within is now converted into a corn-field. centuries, a village called Jehosaphat is mentioned north of the capital and seems to be the same place. Possibly also the Valley of Jehosaphat, near Jerusalem, mentioned by the prophet Joel, may have lain in this direction, though traditionally identified with the Brook Kedron. Sh'afat seems to be an ancient site, and may perhaps be best identified with Nob, the city of the priests, which lay apparently in sight of Jerusalem, on the main line of the Assyrian advance from the north, if we may so interpret the words of Isaiah, " Yet shall he remain at Nob that day, he shall shake his hand against the Mount of the Daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem " (see page 213).
