OccurrencesJoshua 19:5 Ziklag, Beth Marcaboth, Hazar Susah,

beth-mar'-ka-both (beth ha-markabhoth; Baithmachereb, "the house of chariots"): Mentioned along with Hazar-susah, "the station of horses" (Joshua 19:5 1 Chronicles 4:31) as cities in the Negeb near Ziklag. It is tempting to connect these stations with "the cities for his chariots, and the cities for his horsemen" which Solomon built (1 Kings 9:19; compare 1 Kings 10:26). The site of Beth-marcaboth has not been identified, but Guerin (La Terre Sainte. Jerusalem et le Nord de la Judee, II, 230) suggests Khan Yunas, Southwest of Gaza, as a suitable chariot city.
