Shiloh was situated on a hill in the tribe of Ephraim, though
near the borders of Benjamin, about fifteen miles north of
Jerusalem, and, according to Eusebius, twelve, or according to
Jerome, ten miles (south) from Shechem or Nablous. It was but
a little north from Bethel or Ai, and near the road from
Shechem to Jerusalem. (Jud 21:19.) In Jerome's time, Shiloh
was ruined; and nothing remarkable was extant, but the
foundations of the altar of burnt offerings which had been
erected when the tabernacle stood there.
