Etam (ç'tam), the Rock. The place of Samson's retreat after the slaughter of the Philistines. Judges 15:8; Judges 15:11. Conder locates it at Beit ʾAtâb, a little north of Eshuʾa (Eshtaol), which he thinks fully meets all the requisites of the case. It has clefts, caves, and a rock tunnel which would so effectually conceal one that those not acquainted with the place might not find him, nor even the entrance to the tunnel, except by accident.
