A'nab (Heb., Anab', עֲנָב, grape-town; Sept. Α᾿νάβ v. r. Α᾿ναβώθ and Α᾿νών), one of the cities in the mountains of Judah, from which Josh ua expelled theAnakim (Jos 11:21; Jos 15:50). Nearly west of Main (Maon) Dr. Robinson (Researches, 2, 195) observed a place called Anab, distinguished by a' small tower. Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Anob) both confound it with a Beth-Anab' (q.v.) lying a few miles from Diospolis or Lydda (Reland, Palest. p. 560). Schwarz (Palest. p. 136) says it is the village Anabah, three English miles east of Ramleh, meaning doubtless the Annabeh marked on Zimmermann's Map; but this is not at all in the mountains of Judah, as stated in both passages of Joshua.
