bith´ron ( הבּתרון , ha -bithrōn ; ὅλην τὴν παρατείνουσαν , hólēn tḗn parateı́nousan , literally "the entire (land) extending"; 2 Samuel 2:29 , "the Bithron," i.e. the gorge or groove): Does not seem to be a proper name; rather it indicates the gorge by which Abner approached Mahanaim. Buhl (GAP , 121) favors identification with Wādy ‛Ajlūn , along which in later times a Rom road connected ‛Ajlūn and Mahanaim. Others (Guthe, Kurz. bib. Wörterbuch , under the word) incline to Wādy esh Sha‛ı̄b .
