__|a  Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Joshua, viii: 30.)--'Then Joshua built an altar unto the Lord God of Israel in Mount Ebal.' The traveler in passing from Jerusalem northward to Nazareth comes to the entrance of the valley between Mount Gerizim and Mount Ebal at Jacob's well. These mountains so come together as to form a natural amphitheater. Mount Ebal forms the northern side of the fertile valley in which ancient Shechem was situated. It rises to a height of 2986 feet. Upon this mountain the curse for disobedience to the law was pronounced, while the blessing for obedience was given from Mount Gerizim. Its modern Arabic name is Jebel Eslamiyah. This is from a female saint whose tomb is standing on the eastern part of the ridge a little before the highest point is reached. The acoustic properties of the valley between the two mountains have been tested, and it is said that a man's voice uttered in the valley can be distinctly heard across the amphitheater formed here by the two mountains[.]" See 5096BAI/LVi14CAJS (Voyager # 356558).
