Where was Elisha born and raised?
“Abel-meholah [N] [H]
“meadow of dancing”, or “the dancing-meadow”, the birth-place and residence of the prophet Elisha, not far from Beth-shean (1 Kings 4:12 ), in the tribe of Issachar, near where the Wady el-Maleh emerges into the valley of the Jordan, “the rich meadow-land which extends about 4 miles south of Beth-shean; moist and luxuriant.” Here Elisha was found at his plough by Elijah on his return up the Jordan valley from Horeb (1 Kings 19:16 ). It is now called ‘Ain Helweh.”
