Thebez: Brightness, a place some 11 miles north-east of Shechem, on the
road to Scythopolis, the modern Tabas. Abimelech led his army against
this place, because of its participation in the conspiracy of the men
of Shechem; but as he drew near to the strong tower to which its
inhabitants had fled for safety, and was about to set fire to it, a
woman cast a fragment of millstone at him, and "all to brake his
skull" i.e., "altogether brake," etc. His armourbearer thereupon
"thrust him through, and he died"
