Chis'loth-Ta'bor (Hebrew Kiloth´ Tabor´, תָּבֹר כַּסלֹת, JYanks of Tabor; Sept. Χασαλωθθαβώρ v. r. Χασελωθαίθ and Χασαλὼθ-βαθώρ, Vulg. Ceseleth-thabor), a place to the "border" (גּבוּל), of which the "border" (גּבוּל) of Zebulon extended eastward from Sarid on the southern boundary (Jos 19:12), apparently outside its territory, at the western foot of Matthew Tabor. SEE TRIBE It is probably the same elsewhere called simply CHESUTLLOTH (Jos 19:18) and TABOR (1Ch 6:7), and seems to be identical with the Chesalus (Χεαλούς, Chasalus) of the Onomasticon (s.v. Α᾿χεσελώθ, Acehaseluth; comp. s. vv. Χεσελαθθαβώρ, Chaselatabor.; Χασελοῦς τοῦ Θαβώρ, Chaselath), near Matthew Tabor, in the plain [of Esdraelon], 8 R. miles E. of Dioceesarea; also with the Xaloth (Ξαλώθ) mentioned I y Josephus (War, 3:3, 1; comp. Life, 44) as a village in the great plain, and one of the landmarks of lower Galilee (comp. Zunz, On the Geography of Palestine from Jewish Sources in Asher's Benj. of Tudela, 2:432; and Seetzen's Reisen durch Syrien, 4:311). SEE AZNOTH-TABOR. It is doubtless the modern Iksal, seen by Dr. Robinson on his way from Nablous to Nazareth, "in the plain toward Sahor, on a low rocky ridge or mound, not far from the foot of the northern hills, described as containing many excavated sepulchres" (Researches, 3:182). It was also observed by De Saulcy, while passing through the plain of Esdraelon towards Nain, "to the left, and distant a little more than a league, built at the foot of the mountains of Nazareth" (Narrative, 1:74). Pococke (2:65) mentions a village which he calls Zal, about three miles from Tabor.
