Heth'lon (Heb. Chethlon', חֶתלֹן, wrappedup, i.e. a hiding-place; Vulg. Hethalon), a place the approach (דֶּרֶך, "way") to which lay on the northern border of Palestine, between the Mediterranean and Zedad, in the direction of Hamath (Eze 47:15; Eze 48:1). In all probability the "way of Hethlon" is the pass at the (N. or S.) end of Lebanon, from the sea-coast of the Mediterranean to the great plain of Hamath, and is thus identical with "the entrance of Hamath" (q.v.)in Nu 34:8, etc. See Porter, Five Years in Damascus, 2, 356.
