Fuller’ Field

FULLER’S FIELD (Heb. sedhēh khôvēs). A field just outside of Jerusalem where fullers or washermen washed the cloth material they were processing. A highway and a conduit for water passed through it (Isa.7.3; Isa.36.2; niv “Washerman’s Field”). It was so near the city that the Assyrian Rabshakeh, standing and speaking in the field, could be heard by those on the city wall (2Kgs.18.17). Its exact site is in dispute.
