Betomes'tham (Βετομεσθαίμ, Judith 4:6), a place mentioned only in the apocryphal book of Judith, as a town "over against Esdraelon, facing the plain that is near Dothaim" (Judith 4:6), and in the vicinity of "Bebai, Chobai, and Cola, in the coasts of Israel" (15:4). From the manner of its mention, it would seem to have been of equal importance with Bethulia (q.v.) itself, but it is doubtful whether it indicates any historical locality whatever. SEE JUDITH.
