The word pesilim is commonly translated 'graven images,' or 'carved images'; therefore in Judges 3:19,26 the word is better rendered as in margin of A.V. 'graven images.' It is not supposed to refer to a place where stone was excavated, but to some images or blocks of stone so called which stood there.

Under Jerusalem there is a quarry from whence in early days much stone was taken. See JERUSALEM.
