Joshua 15:49

Joshua 15:49

And Dannah
Dannah is not mentioned elsewhere,

and Kirjathsannah, which [is] Debir;
Kirjathsannah had three names, this and Debir, and Kirjathsepher; (See Gill on Joshua 15:15); all which are of much the same signification; for "Sanna" with the Arabs F6, and so with the Phoenicians, signifies law, doctrine, and manner of life; and with the Mahometans the secondary law to the Koran, and answers to the Jewish Misnah; and the Greek version interprets this name "the city of letters". Jerom F7 calls it Daenna, and seems to confound it with Dannah.
