ha - kı̄´la , hak´i - la , ( חכילה , ḥăkhı̄lāh ): A hill in the wilderness of Judah, associated with the wanderings of David. It is stated ( 1 Samuel 23:19 ) to be "on the South of the desert" (or Jeshimon), and (1 Samuel 26:1 ) to be "before (on the front (i.e. edge) of) the desert." It was near Ziph and Maon. The only plausible hypothesis is that it is represented by the ridge Dhahreṭ el -Kōlāh in the wilderness of Ziph, toward the desert of En-gedi (PEF , III, 313, Sh XXI ).
