BETH-HACCHEREM (‘place of the vineyard’), Nehemiah 3:14 , Jeremiah 6:1 . It appears to have had a commanding position for a beacon or ensign. Tradition fixed on Herodium south of Bethlehem, probably because it was a conspicuous site near Tekoa, with which it is noticed. A possible site is ‘Ain Karim , west of Jerusalem, where there are vineyards.
