Ma'roth (Heb. laeroth', מָרוֹת, bitter fountains; Sept. ὀδύναι, Vulg. a emaritudines), a place apparently not far from Jerusalem, on the route of the invading Assyrian army from Lachish (Mic 1:12; see Henderson, Comment. ad loc.). Schwarz (Palest. p. 107) conjectures it was identical with Maarath (Jos 15:59); but this name is very different in the Hebrew.
