  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Joktheel 
  subdued  by  God.  (1.)  A  city  of  Judah  near  Lachish  (Josh.  15, 
  38).  Perhaps  the  ruin  Kutlaneh  south  of  Gezer. 
 
  (2.)  Amaziah,  king  of  Judah,  undertook  a  great  expedition 
  against  Edom  (2  Chr.  25:5-10),  which  was  completely  successful. 
  He  routed  the  Edomites  and  slew  vast  numbers  of  them  So 
  wonderful  did  this  victory  appear  to  him  that  he  acknowledged 
  that  it  could  have  been  achieved  only  by  the  special  help  of 
  God,  and  therefore  he  called  Selah  (q.v.),  their  great  fortress 
  city,  by  the  name  of  Joktheel  (2  Kings  14:7).
