Achzib (2)

Achzib of Judah (Jos 15:44) is regarded by Tristram as the present Ain Kezbeh, near Beit-Nettif (Bible Places, p. 43), not meaning, as proposed by Keil (Comnment. ad loc.), the "place of springs called Kussabeh with ruins in the neighborhood" (Robinson, Bibl. Res. ii, 48), which may, perhaps, be included in the group of towns in which Achzib is mentioned (Nezib, Keilah, Mareshah, etc.), although very much south of them; but the spot marked on the Ordnance Map as Ain Kezbeh at the fork of the road five eighths of a mile south-east of Beit-Nettif, which, however, is too far north, being in a different group (Jarmuth, Socoh, etc.). SEE JUDAH, TRIBE OF.
