[some Elte'kon] (Hebrews Eltekon' אֶלתֶּקן, God is its foundation; Sept. Ε᾿λθεκούν v.r. Ε᾿λθεκεν and Θέκουμ, Vulg. Eltecon), a city of Judah, in the mountain-district, mentioned last in order after Maarath and Beth- Anoth (Jos 15:59), being in the group north of Hebron (Keil, Comment. in loc.). SEE JUDAH. It is perhaps identical in site with the present Deit Sahur el-Atikah, a little S.E. of Jerusalem. SEE ELTEKEH. It is perhaps the Altaqu mentioned in the Assyrian inscriptions. SEE HEZEKIAH.
