Joshua 13:4  (King James Version)
From the south, all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah that is beside the Sidonians, unto Aphek, to the borders of the Amorites:
 


the land of
10:40 11:3 Joshua 12:7 Joshua 12:8

Mearah
or, the cave. Aphek.
This is probably the Aphek spoken of in 1 ; Ki 20:26 2 ; Ki 13:18 as the capital of the kings of Syria; and the same as
is mentioned by Sozomen, Eusebius, and Theophanes, as situated near the river Adonis (now Nahr Ibrahim,) between Heliopolis and Byblos, and celebrated for the infamous temple of Venus the Aphacite. The village Afka, situated in the bottom of a valley, and hour and three quarters from Akoura, and three hours' distance from Lake Liemoun, is supposed to occupy its site. Burckhardt, however, could not hear of any remains of antiquity in it neighbourhood. 19:30 1 Samuel 4:1
