ad-o-ra'-im ('adhorayim, "a pair of knolls," perhaps): One of several cities in Judah that were fortified by Rehoboam (2 Chronicles 11:9). The name appears in Josephus and in 1 Maccabees as Adora or Dora or Dor. Its location is indicated in general by that of the other cities which the record in Chronicles groups with it. Common consent identifies it with Dura, about five miles West by South of Hebron.

ADORA'IM, in Juday, now Dura, 5 ms. w. by s. of Hebron, 21 ms. from Jerusalem, and 2945 ft. above the sea.
Strong's Hebrew
H115: Adorayim

perhaps "two hills," a city in Judah
