Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Judges, xviii:12.)--'And they went up and pitched in Kirjath-jearim in Judea.' Kuryet-el-Anab is supposed by some to be the ancient Kirjath-jearim. This place is now called Abu Gosh, after a famous old robber who lived here and whose descendants still reside in the village. A tomb has been built to his memory here by his relatives, and this is one of the most thrifty looking villages between Jaffa and Jerusalem. Kirjath-jearim is first mentioned as one of the four cities of the Gibeonites. The ark remained here for twenty years and was removed from this place by David to the house of Obed-edom the Gittite. Eusebius and Jerome speak of this city and describe it as a village at the ninth mile between Jerusalem and Lydda, and these requirements are exactly fulfilled in Kuryet-el-Anab."
