Abel Beth Maacah

Abel Beth Maacah

Abel Beth Maacah is located in a territory of Naphtali, in the northernmost area of modern Israel. According to 2 Samuel 20:14-22, Joab pursued a rebel leader known as Sheba into the Abel Beth Maacah fortress. However, when a ‘wise woman’ in the city tossed her head outside the city gates, Joab relented his anger against the people. Other biblical mentions of Abel Beth Maacah are: In I Kings 15:20, Benhadad takes the city. In II Kings 15:29, Tiglath-Pileser takes the city.
