  house  of  crossing,  a  place  south  of  the  scene  of  Gideon's 
  victory  (Judg.  7:24).  It  was  probably  the  chief  ford  of  the 
  Jordan  in  that  district,  and  may  have  been  that  by  which  Jacob 
  crossed  when  he  returned  from  Mesopotamia,  near  the  Jabbok  (Gen. 
  32:22),  and  at  which  Jephthah  slew  the  Ephraimites  (Judg.  12:4).
