Ach'shaph (Heb. Akshaph', אִבשָׁŠ, fascination: Sept. Α᾿χασάφ) a royal city of the Canaanites, in the northern part of Palestine (Jos 11:1) whose king was overthrown by Joshua (Jos 12:20). It was situated on the eastern boundary of the tribe of Asher, and is named between Beten and Alammelech (Jos 19:25). By some (see Reland, Paloest, p. 543) it has been regarded as the same as Achzib, but this is mentioned separately (Jos 19:29). By others (e.g. Hammesveld, 3, 237) it has been assumed to be the same as Accho or Acre, and Schwarz (Palest. p. 191) thinks it is the modern village Kefr-Yasif, five miles north-east of that town; but this region is too far west for the Biblical notices. Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Α᾿κσαφ) locate it at the foot of Mount Tabor, eight miles from Diocaesarea; but they have evidently confounded it with Chesulloth (see Keil's Comment. on Jos 11:1). Dr. Robinson is probably correct in identifying it with the ruined village Kesaf, around a large tree, two miles north-east of Kubrikah, a little south of the Litany, and nearly midway between the Mediterranean and the Upper Jordan (new ed. of Researches, 3, 55).
