the Week of Proper 19 / Ordinary 24
Fausset's Bible Dictionary
Nahum's birthplace. Elkesi, a village of Galilee, pointed out to Jerome, with traces of ancient buildings. The Elkosh E. of Tigris, and N. of Mosul, believed by Jewish pilgrims to be Nahum's birthplace and burial place, is less probable, as his prophecies show only a general acquaintance with Assyria but a particular knowledge of Palestine (Nahum 1:4; Nahum 2:4-6; Nahum 3:2-3).
