Allon-bachuth – oak of weeping, a tree near Bethel, at the spot where Deborah, Rebekah’s nurse, was buried (Gen. 35:8).

Large trees, from their rarity in the plains of Palestine, were frequently designated as landmarks.

This particular tree was probably the same as the “palm tree of Deborah” (Judg. 4:5).
