General Location Notes
  • New Unger’s Bible Dictionary (1988) (Chitlish): “south-southeast of Beit Jibrin
  • Van de Velde, Narrative of Journey through Syria and Palestine (1854) (page 147) on the road from Al Qubayba, "a full half-hour on this side of Beit-Jebrin, Saleh pointed out to me a high tell in the south-south-east. ’That is Tell-Chilchis,’ said he, ’the most remarkable among the tells of this neighbourhood.’" Thus, the tell is south-southeast of a point between Al Qubayba and Beit Jibrin, not south-southeast of Beit Jibrin itself
