Na'airan (Heb. Noaran', נִעֲרָן boyish; Sept. Νααράν v.r. Νααρνάν and Νοοράν), a town in the territory of Ephraim, on the south-eastern border, between Bethel and Jericho (1Ch 7:28). In Jos 16:7 the name is NAARATH SEE NAARATH (q.v.).
"In 1Sa 6:21 the Peshito-Syriac and Arabic versions have respectively Naarin and Naaran for the Kirjath-jearim of the Hebrew and A.V. If this is anything more than an error, the Naaran to which it refers can hardly be that above spoken of, but must have been situated much nearer to Beth-shemesh and the Philistine lowland."
