Kirjath Jearim



The stock image depicts the ancient city of Kirjath Jearim, also known as Kiriath Yearim or Baalah, located in the Judean hills of present-day Israel. According to the Bible, it was one of the cities allotted to the tribe of Judah but later became part of the territory of Benjamin.

Kirjath Jearim was an important religious center, as it was the location of the Ark of the Covenant after it was returned by the Philistines. It was also the site of a temple dedicated to the worship of Baal, which was destroyed by King Josiah in the 7th century BCE.

The map shows the location of Kirjath Jearim in relation to nearby cities such as Jerusalem, Gibeon, and Bethlehem, as well as major landmarks like the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. It also highlights the road that led from Kirjath Jearim to Jerusalem, which was likely traveled by King David when he brought the Ark of the Covenant to the city.
