(Heb. Beyth he-E'tsel, בֵּית הָאֵצֶל, house of the firm root, i.e. fixed dwelling; Sept. translates οϊ v κος ἐχόμενος αὐτῆς, "neighboring house," as in our margin), a town in Judaea, mentioned Micah 1:11, where there is an allusion to the above etymology. Ephraem Syrus understands a place near Samaria; but the context seems to locate it in the Philistine plain, perhaps at the modern Beit-Affa (Robinson, Researches, 2, 369, note), 5.25 miles S.E. of Ashdod (Van de Velde's Map).
