beth -zak -a -rı̄´as Βαιθ-ζαχαριά , Baith -zachariá ): Here Judas Maccabeus failed in battle with Antiochus Eupator, and his brother Eleazar fell in conflict with an elephant (1 Macc 6:32ff; the King James Version "Bathzacharias"). It was a position of great strength, crowning a promontory which juts out between two deep valleys. It still bears the ancient name with little change, Beit Zakāriā . It lies about 4 miles Southwest of Bethlehem (BR , III, 283ff; Ant , XII , ix, 4).
