Janoah (2)


(1) OF EPHRAIM Of Khurbet Yanun, the modern representative of this place, the Memoirs accompanying the Ordnance Survey (2:395) give only this notice: "Traces of ruins above a spring."

(2) OF NAPHTALI. The Yauih, thought by some to represent this place, is a double village, nine and three quarter miles south-east from es-Zib (Ecdippa, or Achzib), which would fall on the border between Asher and Naphtali, and is thus described (from Guerin) in the Memoirs accompanying the Ordnance Survey (1:193): "Cisterns cut in the rock, and many cut stones scattered over the soil, surrounding platforms or employed as building material, show that we are here on the site of a small ancient city, the name of which is faithfully preserved in its modern name." Lieut. Conder, how ever, distinguishes this locality from the Janoah of 2Ki 15:29 (see the Memoirs as above, 1:96; but no description of the place is given), which he regards as the Januh lying four miles south of the Leontes (Nahr Kasimiyeh), and six and a quarter miles east of Tyre; but this would fall within the tribe of Asher.
