jut'-a, joo'-ta (yuTTah, Joshua 21:16; Septuagint Tanu; and in Joshua 15:55 the King James Version, Septuagint Itan, A, Ietta); ju'-ta (yaTah), Joshua 15:55): A town in the hill country of Judah, mentioned with Maon, Carmel and Ziph; a Levitical city (Joshua 21:16). In some versions of Septuagint it occurs (Iota) in 1 Chronicles 6:57. In the Eusebius, Onomasticon (266 49; 133 10) a large village called "Juttah" is described as 18 Roman miles from Eleutheropolis. This agrees with the position of YuTTa, a large and prosperous Moslem village, 3,740 ft. above sea-level, 5 1/3 miles South of Hebron and 15 1/2 miles from Beit Jebrin (Eleutheropolis). There are many rock-cut tombs and ancient winepresses all around the village.
