A term found only once in the Bible (Song of Song of Song of Song of Solomon 7:4 ), apparently as the name of a gate at or near Heshbon. The passage is obscure but of the various emendations that have been proposed— by Grä tz," Schir ha-Schirim" ("Rabbath Ammon") by Winckler, "Altorientalische Forschungen," 1:293 et seq. ("Helbon"), and by Cheyne, in "Jew. Quart. Rev." 1899 ("wood of Beth Cerem")— none is entirely satisfactory.
