Hammath

Hammath [N] [E]

(warm springs ), one of the fortified cities in the territory allotted to Naphtali. ( Joshua 19:35 ) It was near Tiberias, one mile distant, and had its name Chammath, "hot baths," because it contained those of Tiberias. In the list of Levitical cities given out of Naphtali, ( Joshua 21:32 ) the name of this place seems to be given as HAMMOTH-DOR.
