[some Elte'keh] (Hebrews Eltekeh', אֶלתּקֵהִ, God is its fear, i.e., object of awe; but Elteke', אֶלתּקֵא in Jos 21:23; Sept. Ε᾿λθεκώ v.r. Α᾿λθακά and ή Ε᾿λκωθαίυ, Vulg. Elthece and Eltheco), a city in the tribe of Dan, apparently near the border, and mentioned between Ekron and Gibbethon (Jos 19:44) With its "suburbs" it was assigned as a city of refuge and Levitical city to the Kohathites (Jos 21:23); but it is omitted in the parallel list (1 Chronicles 6). The site is possibly now represented by El-Mansurah ("the victorious"), "a miserable little village" near a copious spring, in the plain between Ramleh and Akir (Robinson, Researches, 3:21). Schwarz (Palest. page 141) confounds Eltekeh with Eltekon, and locates both at a village which he calls "Althini, not far from Beilin (Baalath)."
