(teh' reh bihnth) A large, spreading tree whose species is uncertain so that translations vary in reading the Hebrew elah into English (compare 2 Samuel 18:9; Isaiah 1:30; Isaiah 6:13 ). The tree had religious connections as a place under which pagan gods were worshiped (Hosea 4:13; Ezekiel 6:13 ) which were at times taken up in Israel's religion (Genesis 35:4; Joshua 24:26; Judges 6:11; 1 Kings 13:14 ).
