Man'ahath (Heb. Mana'chath, מָנִחִת, rest), the name of a man and of a place.

1. (Sept. Μαναχάθ.) The second named of the five sons of Shobal, the son of Seir the Horite (Ge 36:23; 1Ch 1:40). B.C. cir. 1927.

2. (Sept. Μαναχαθί v. r. Μαχαναθί.) A town or region to which certain descendants of Ehud, of the tribe of Benjamin, appear to have been exiled from Geba by an act of his father Bela (1Ch 8:6). The context would seem to indicate some locality in the land of Moab. SEE SHAHARAIM. Some refer it to the MENUCHAH of Judah (Jg 9:43, A. Vers. "with ease;" comp. 1Ch 2:52,54), but with little probability. SEE MENUCHITE.
