ESHTAOL . A lowland city of Judah ( Joshua 15:33 ) on the borders of Dan 19:41), near which Samson began to feel ‘the spirit of the Lord’ ( Judges 13:25 ), and was buried ( Judges 16:31 ); the home of some of the Danites who attacked Laish ( Judges 18:2 ; Judges 18:11 ). It is supposed to be the same as Eshu‘a , near Ain esh-Shems (Beth-shemesh). The Eshtaolites are enumerated among the Calebites ( 1 Chronicles 2:53 ).
