Where is this cave of Adullam? [In the Land and the Book of 1859, William] Thomson places it at Mugharet Kureitun, southeast of Bethlehem, as the only place that could furnish a sufficient stronghold for David's army [I Chronicles 9]. This is a good seven miles away, a long run for these valiant men, if David were still there, for he may have moved nearer to the enemy, and to Bethlehem.
(The Reverend J T Durward, Holy Land and Holy Writ, Baraboo WI: Pilgrim Publishing Co, 1913, page 204)
