be'-ther (bether): In Songs 2:17 mention is made of "the mountains of Bether." It is doubtful if a proper name is intended. The Revised Version, margin has, "perhaps, the spice malobathron." A Bether is prominent in late Jewish history as the place where the Jews resisted Hadrian under Bar Cochba in 135 A.D. Its identity with Bittir, 7 miles Southwest of Jerusalem, is attested by an inscription.
