Taralah

[some Tara'lah] (Heb. Taratlah', תִּרְאֲלָה, reeling; Sept. Θαραλά v.r. Θαρεηλά; Vulg. Thairem), a town in the western section of the tribe of Benjamin, mentioned between Irpeel and Zelah (Joshua 18:27). Schwarz suggests (Palest. p. 128) that it "is perhaps the village' Thaniel=Thariel, in the neighborhood of Lod," probably meaning Neby Daniyal, two miles south of Lud; but the name has little resemblance, and the territory of Beniamin did not reach so far west. It is possibly represented by the modern village Beit-Tirza, in Wady Ahmed, just north of Beit-Jala, with a well adjacent and several ruined sites in the vicinity.
