Shunem


Shu’nem (double resting-place), one of the cities allotted to the tribe of Issachar. Josh. 19:18. It is mentioned on two occasions—1 Sam. 28:4; 2 Kings 4:8. It was besides the native place of Abishag. 1 Kings 1:3. It is mentioned by Eusebius as five miles south of Mount Tabor, and then known as Sulem. This agrees with the position of the present Solam, a village three miles north of Jezreel and five from Gilboa.
