Baalath-Beer (Bealoth or Ramath- negeb). "From the incidental notices and the names we gather that it was a watering-place of importance (Beer-Baal) and had artificial tanks; that' it was on a commanding height (Ramath); that it was on the frontier,-and we might expect traces of fortification to remain :All these conditions are fulfilled in Kurnab, south-west of Dhullam, where alone for many miles water is always found in plenty, and where the ravine is crossed by a strong dam to retain it. The walls of a fortified town are yet clearly to be traced, with extensive ruins, and it is at the head of the most frequented pass into Palestine from. the south-east" (Tristram, Bible Places, p. 17).
