    booths. (1.) The first encampment of the Israelites after
    leaving Ramesses (Ex. 12:37); the civil name of Pithom (q.v.).
      (2.) A city on the east of Jordan, identified with Tell
    Dar'ala, a high mound, a mass of debris, in the plain north of
    Jabbok and about one mile from it (Josh. 13:27). Here Jacob
    (Gen. 32:17, 30; 33:17), on his return from Padan-aram after his
    interview with Esau, built a house for himself and made booths
    for his cattle. The princes of this city churlishly refused to
    afford help to Gideon and his 300 men when "faint yet pursuing"
    they followed one of the bands of the fugitive Midianites after
    the great victory at Gilboa. After overtaking and routing this
    band at Karkor, Gideon on his return visited the rulers of the
    city with severe punishment. "He took the elders of the city,
    and thorns of the wilderness and briers, and with them he taught
    the men of Succoth" (Judg. 8:13-16). At this place were erected
    the foundries for casting the metal-work for the temple (1 Kings
