  1. Quarries

    Quarries - The "Royal Quarries" — not found in Scripture — is the name given to the vast caverns stretching far underneath the northern hill, Bezetha, on which Jerusalem is built. Out of these mammoth caverns stones, a hard limestone, were quarried in the past for buildings in the city, and for the temples of Solomon, Zerubbabel, and Herod. Huge blocks of stone are still found in these caves bearing the marks of pick and chisel. The general appearance of the whole suggests the idea that the Phoenician quarrymen have just suspended their work. The theory that the blocks of stone for Solomon's temple were sent by Hiram from Lebanon or Tyre is not supported by any evidence. Instead, it is now believed that Hiram sent masons and stone-squarers to Jerusalem to assist Solomon's workmen, but did not send stones to Jerusalem. The stones would have come from these quarries The "quarries" by Gilgal, from which Ehud turned back for the purpose of carrying out his design to put Eglon king of Moab to death, were probably the "graven images", or the idol temples the Moabites had erected at Gilgal, where the children of Israel first encamped after crossing the Jordan. The Hebrew word is rendered "graven images" in Deut. 7:25, and is not elsewhere translated "quarries."
