Salecah, Salcah

SALECAH, SALCAH (Heb. salekhâh). A city on the extreme NE boundary of the kingdom of Bashan, near Edrei (Deut.3.10; Josh.12.5; Josh.13.11). Og, king of Bashan, once ruled it; and undoubtedly it was included in the portion given to the half-tribe of Manasseh. It later became the northern limit of the Gadites (1Chr.5.11). It is now known as Salkhad.
