Description
A rock-strewn mountainside with a row of trees and a man-made stone wall at the base.
The photograph is in a book with a typed description. The description: "(Genesis, xii:6.)--'And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land.' The 'place of Sichem' referred to was afterward known as Shechem, and now is called Nablous. Shechem, or Nablous, is built between the mountains Ebal and Gerizim. It is more completely at the foot of Mount Gerizim. The mount really slopes down into the town. This is the first town mentioned in Palestine connecting it with the history of God's chosen people. Abraham erected an altar here and consecrated the place to the worship of Jehovah, and after the children of Israel took possession of the country, the bones of Joseph were deposited at Shechem, in the parcel of land which Jacob purchased of the children of Hamor, the father of Shechem, for a hundred pieces of silver. (Joshua, xxiv:32.) This mountain is notable because it is the one to which the woman of Samaria referred in her conversation with our Savior at Jacob's well." The copyright year and photographer's name are at the bottom of the photograph. See 5430BAI/LVii156CAJS (Voyager # 362482).
