Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֵלָה f. i.q. אֵיל No. 2 (from the root אוּל), a strong hardy tree, specially the terebinth (Pistacia Terebinthus, Linn.), a tree common in Palestine, long-lived, and on that account often used in designating places (Genesis 35:4; Judges 6:11, 19 Judges 6:19). According to Pliny (xvi. 12), an evergreen; but this is contradicted by modern botanists. The ancient versions sometimes render it terebinth, sometimes oak (see the further remarks in Thes. page 50, 1); and the word appears, in a wider sense, to be used of any large tree, like the Gr. δρῦς. [The modern name of the terebinth is بطم butm, Robinson, iii. 15.]
