1_Azekah_ViewofElahValley_Day1 As with so many views from high points or tels in Israel, much can be packed into one landscape.  This view from Azekah is significant enough itself, but from here looking east and slightly southeast, you can see the Elah Valley just beyond the road and green hill below.  To the right of the valley is Sochoh, on the left is Khirbet Qeiyafa, of much Biblical Archaeology fame and debate over the past few years.  Azekah, Sochoh, and the Elah Valley all feature in the account of David and Goliath (I Samuel 17).
