Beeshterah. City of the half-tribe of Manasseh given to the levitical family of Gershonites in the partitioning of the Promised Land (Jos 21:27). The spelling is a shortened form for Beth-Ashtaroth (“house or place of Ashtaroth”). It seems to be the same as the city of Ashtaroth found in a similar passage
