Plain of the Pillar

With the Revised Version margin we must read "terebinth of the pillar," the place where the men of Shechem and Beth-millo made Abimelech king (Jud 9:6). This was one of the sacred trees of which there seem to have been several near Shechem. See Oak of Meonenim. "The pillar" may possibly have been the great stone which Joshua set up "under the oak that was by the sanctuary of Yahweh" (Jos 24:26).
