A´bel-Meho´lah, or Abel-Mea (Place of the dance), a town supposed to have stood near the Jordan, and some miles (Eusebius says ten) to the south of Bethshan or Scythopolis (1 Kings 4:12). It is remarkable in connection with Gideon's victory over the Midianites (Judges 7:22), and as the birth-place of Elisha (1 Kings 19:16).
