ADUMMIM . The Ascent of ( Joshua 15:7 ; Joshua 18:17 ), is the steep pass in which the road ascends from Jericho to Jerusalem. Its modern name, Tal‘at ed-Dumm , ‘the ascent of blood’ or ‘red,’ is most probably due to the red marl which is so distinctive a feature of the pass. In this pass, notorious for robberies and murders, is the traditional ‘inn’ of Luke 10:34 .
