Absalom’s Pillar


Absalom’s Pillar, or Place, a monument or tomb which Absalom had built during his lifetime in the king’s dale, i.e., the valley of the Kedron, at the foot of Mount Olivet, near Jerusalem, 2 Sam. 18:18, comp. with 14:27, for his three sons, and where he probably expected to be buried. The tomb there now, and called by Absalom’s name, was probably built at a later date.
