Ith'nan (Heb. Yithnan', יַתנָן, bestowed, otherwise distance; Sept. Ι᾿θνάν [but the Vat. MS. joins it to the preceding word, Α᾿σοριωνάν, and the Alex. to the following, Ι᾿θναζίφ],Vulg. Jethram), one of the cities in the south of Judah, mentioned between Hazor and Ziph (Jos 15:23); perhaps lying along the southern edge of the highland district. It cannot well have been the Jedna of the Onomasticon (Ι᾿εδνά, the modern Idhna), for this is in the mountains west of Hebron (see Keil Comment. ad loc.). The enumeration in ver. 32 requires us to join this with the following (there being no copula between), Ithnan-Ziph, i.e. Zephath (q.v.). SEE JUDAH.
