beth -mar´ka -both ( בּית המּרכּבת , bēth ha -markābhōth ; Βαιθμαχερέβ , Baithmacheréb , "the house of chariots"): Mentioned along with Hazar-susah, "the station of horses" (Joshua 19:5; 1 Chronicles 4:31 ) as cities in the Negeb near Ziklag. It is tempting to connect these stations with "the cities for his chariots, and the cities for his horsemen" which Solomon built (1 Kings 9:19; compare 1 Kings 10:26 ). The site of Beth-marcaboth has not been identified, but Guérin (La Terre Sainte. Jerusalem et le Nord de la Judée , II, 230) suggests Khan Yunas , Southwest of Gaza, as a suitable chariot city.
