Abel-beth-Maacah was not in it, but in Israel; in the direction of Maacah, and somehow connected with it (2 Samuel 20:14-16). A small kingdom outside Argob (Deuteronomy 3:14), and Bashan (Joshua 12:5). Between Bashan and the kingdom of Damascus, on the skirts of Mount Hermon, E. of the Lejah. The mention of Maacah with the Geshurites points to a connection between them; probably by affinity, as the Geshurite Talmai's daughter bears the name Maacah. Both were connected with Syria (1 Chronicles 19:6-7; 2 Samuel 10:6; 2 Samuel 10:8). The king of Maacah was Ammon's ally against David; his small contingent, 1,000 men, shows the pettiness of the region.
