[many Sec' acoh ] (Heb. Sekakah', סכָכָה, thicket; Sept. Σοχοχά v.r. Αἰοχιόζα; Vulg. Sechacha, or Sachacha), one of the six cities of Judah situated in the Midbar (" wilderness"), that is, the tract bordering ou the Dead Sea (Jos 15:61). It occurs in the list between Middin and han- Nibshan. It was not known to Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast.). From Sinjii, among the highlands of Ephraim, near Seilfin, Dr. Robinson saw a place called Sekakeh (Bib. Res. ii, 8l, note); but this locality is, of course, out of the question. The place possibly corresponds to the site of Kusr Altar, one of two ruined towers on Wady Khureitun (Robinson, Bib. Res. ii: 182).
