Kish'iin (Heb. Kishyon', קַשׁיוֹן, so called from the hardness of the soil; Sept. Κεσιών;, Auth. Vers. "Kishon" in Jos 21:28), a city of the tribe of Issachar (Jos 19:20, where it is mentioned between Rabbith and Abez), assigned to the Levites of the family of Gershom, and for a place of refuge (Jos 21:28); elsewhere (1Ch 6:72) called KEDESH SEE KEDESH (q.v.). De Saulcy found ruins called Kashaneh (or Kabshaneh), an hour and a half from Kefr-Kenna, commanding the Merj-es-Serbal. north of Mt. Tabor, which he is inclined to identify with the ancient Kishion (Naurat. ii, 325, 326). Schwarz, citing from Astori, places it 2-1 miles south of Chesulloth (Iksal); but he appears to be misled by the analogy of the name of this place with that of the brook Kishon (Palest. p. 166), which has no connection in origin (see Hamesveld, 3:241).
