Joshua 16:2 seems to distinguish the two places, Bethel perhaps being the worship place and Luz the city. Bethel would then be Burj Beitin and Luz, Beitin. 2. A city in the land of the Hittites which a man founded after showing the tribe of Joseph how to conquer Bethel ( Judges 1:26 ). Its location is not known. See Hittites.
