Jattir was a town in ancient Israel. It was located in the mountainous land of Judah (Josh. 15:48; 21:14). It was made a Levitical town for priests to live. David gave some of the spoils from his battle with the Amalekites, who took David's two wives from Ziklag (1 sam 30:27). Jattir is identified with Khirbet Attir (Horvat Yattir) southwest of Hebron.
