In the latter tribe it remained at any rate till the reign of David, 1 Chron. 4:28, but by the time of the captivity it seems to have come back into the hands of Judah, by whom it was reinhabited after the captivity. Neh. 11:26. It may be placed at el-Milh, which is about 4 English miles from Tell Arad, 17 or 18 from Hebron, and 9 or 10 due east of Beersheba.
