General Location Notes
  • HarperCollins Bible Dictionary (2011) (Jabesh-gilead): "the residential area" next to Tell Abu el Kharaz
  • Holman Illustrated Bible Dictionary (2003) (Zarethan) and HarperCollins Bible Dictionary (2011) (Zarethan) mention "Tell el Merkbere", and Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary (1992) (Zarethan (place)) mentions this location, "Tell el Meqbera (on the Wadi Yabis)", so I’m equating them here
