Ramah
Several elevated sites have this name in the OT:
1)A place 8 km. (5 miles) north of Jerusalem where Deborah was a judge (Judg. 4:5) and which later was destroyed by Asa of Judah (1 Kgs. 15:22). It was on the Assyrians' route towards Jerusalem (Isa. 10:29).
2)The early home of Samuel (1 Sam. 1:19; 7:17), in Ephraim. Saul visited Samuel there (1 Sam. 9:6) and David was given safe lodging there (1 Sam. 19:18).
