BETOMESTHAIM, BETOMASTHAIM bĕt’ əmĕs thā’ əm, bĕ’ ə mäs thä’ əm Βαιτομεσθαίμ,—μασθαίμ; KJV BETOMESTHAM). Place unidentified but facing plain of “Esdraelon opposite the plain near Dothan” (Judg 4:6). Because of its strategic military position by Esdraelon, Betomesthaim (4:6) was requested by Joakim, high priest in Jerusalem, to block the Assyrians under Holofernes (general under Nebuchadnezzar) at the passes into the hills. After Judith killed Holofernes, Uzziah, a magistrate of Bethulia (Judith’s home), sent to Betomasthaim (15:4) for aid in destroying the Assyrians.
