(2 Samuel 18:6).

(from EPHRAIM, FOREST OF)

(ya'ar 'ephrayim):

The word ya'ar (Hebrew) probably agrees in meaning with the Arabic wa'r, which indicates a rough country, abounding in rocks, stones and scrub, with occasional trees; not a "forest," as we understand the term. Here Absalom was defeated and slain (2 Samuel 18:6, the King James Version "wood of Ephraim"). It must be sought, therefore, East of the Jordan, in the neighborhood of Mahanaim; but no identification is yet possible.
