Gaza, near Shechem, only mentioned 1 Chr. , has entirely disappeared. It was destroyed at the time of the Conquest, and its place was taken by Shechem. (See []SYCHAR.). In Deuteronomy 27 and 28 we see the command Yahweh gave that an altar be made of living stones and placed on Mount Ebal.

Shechem had great spiritual significance for Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, and Joshua. Also Shechem was situated on the essential crossroads along the Way of the Patriarchs.
