A town in Judah allotted with its suburbs to the priests (Joshua 15:50 , 21:14 1Chronicles 6:57 ). David frequented this place during his wanderings (1Samuel 30:28 ). It is known now under the name of "Al-Samu' a," a village seven miles south of Hebron (Robinson, "Biblical Researches in Palestine," 2:626). In 1Chronicles 4:17 "Eshtemoa" may be taken either for a person or for a city, but in verse 19 "Eshtemoa" certainly represents a person.
