Allon-bachuth, oak of weeping, a tree near Bethel, at the spot where Deborah, Rebekah's nurse, was buried (Genesis 35:8). Large trees, from their rarity in the plains of Palestine, were frequently designated as landmarks. This particular tree was probably the same as the "palm tree of Deborah" (Judges 4:5).
