Amad (2)

Amad Tristram thinks this is the "little mound with traces of ruins, called Un el- Amad, five miles west of Wady el-Malek" (Bible Places, p. 215); meaning the Um el-Amvad of Robinson (Later Researches, p. 113, note), who, however, observes that "the people of Bethlehem [Beit-lahm of Zebulun adjoining] said there were no columns there," as the name ("mother of columns") would imply. The place is laid down on the Ordnance Map as Umm el-Amed, a village without any signs of ruins, one mile south of west from Beit-lahm, in the hills north of the plain of Esdraelon; but the situation is rather far east to have been included in the territory of Asher.
