2 Chronicles 20:16

_ _ they come up by the cliff of Ziz — This seems to have been nothing else than the present pass which leads northwards, by an ascent from En-gedi to Jerusalem, issuing a little below Tekoa. The wilderness of Jeruel was probably the large flat district adjoining the desert of Tekoa, called El-Husasah, from a wady on its northern side [Robinson].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
