BEROTHAH, BEROTHAI bĭ rō’ thə; thī (Ezek 47:16 בֵּרֹ֨ותָה׃֙; LXX Βηρωθα; ̓Αβθηρα; ̓Ωσθηρα; 2 Sam 8:8 בֵּֽרֹתַ֖י, LXX ἐκ τῶν ἐκλεκτῶν πόλεων). A city of Hadadezer situated between Damascus and Hamath and from which David took much bronze. It was once thought that this was Beirut. The more probable identification, however, is with Bereitan, N of Damascus.

BEROTHAH, BEROTHAI (bē-rō'tha, bē-rō'thī, Heb. bērôthāh, well or wells). A town situated between Hamath and Damascus (Ezek.47.16). Probably the same as a city of Hadadezer that David took (2Sam.8.8). It has now been identified as Bereitan, north of Damascus.
