A'vith (Hebrews Avith', עֲוִית, ruins; Sept. Γεθαίμ, Vulg. Avith), a city of the Edomites, and the native place (capital) of one of their kings, Hadad ben- Bedad; before there were kings in Israel (Ge 36:35; 1Ch 1:46, where the Hebrews text has עֲיוֹת, Ayoth', Sept, Γεθθάμ v. r. Γεθαίμ, Εὐιθ, Vulg. Avith). It would seem to have been situated at the north-eastern extremity of the range of Mount Seir, as the king is stated to have thence made a hostile incursion into the territory of his Moabitish neighbors who were leagued with the Midianites. The name may be compared with el-Ghoweitheh, a "chain of low hills" mentioned by Burckhardt (p. 375) as lying to the east of the district of Kerek in Moab (Knobel, Genesis, p. 257).
