The modern representative of this, Khurbet Kila, lies seven miles east of Beit-jibrin, and eight and a quarter north-west of Hebron, and is a ruined village with two wells to the north, and a large terebinth to the south. It is only cursorily mentioned in the Memoirs accompanying the Ordnance Survey (3:314). In. the neighborhood west of it the English engineers "found a sacred place dedicated to Neby Naaman, the name now attached to a sacred tree near the ruin called Khurbet Shermeh," which Lieut. Conder explains as a travesty of the native Nephsa Neemana, or "Monument of the Faithful," and equivalent to Barath Satia, which Sozomen says (Hist. Ecclesiastes 7:29) was the name of a place in his day ten stadia from Keilah, where the tomb of Micah was still found (Quar. Statement of "'Pal. Explor. Fund," July 1877, page 142).
