Beth-ar'abah (Heb. Beyth ha-Arabah', הָעֲרָבָה בֵּית, house of the desert; Sept. Βηθάραβα v. r. Βαιθαραβά and Θαραβαάμ; in Jos 18:22, Βηθαβαρά v. r. Βαιθαβαρά), one of the six cities of Judah which were situated in the Arabah, i.e. the sunk valley of the Jordan and Dead Sea ("wilderness," Jos 15:61), on the north border of the tribe, and apparently between Beth-hoglah and the high land on the west of the Jordan valley (Jos 15:6). It was afterward included in the list of the towns of Benjamin (Jos 18:22). It is elsewhere (Jos 18:18) called simply ARABAH SEE ARABAH (q.v.). It seems to be extant in the ruins called Kusr Hajla, a little south-west of the site of Beth-hoglah (q.v.).
