Zanoah

Zanoah [N] [E] [H]

(marsh ).

  1. A town of Judah in the Shefelah or plain, ( Joshua 15:34 ; Nehemiah 3:13 ; 11:30 ) possibly identical with Zanua .
  2. A town of Judah in the highland district, ( Joshua 15:66 ) not improbably identical with Sanute , about 10 miles south of Hebron.
  3. In the genealogical lists of the tribe of Judah in 1 Chron., Jekuthiel is said to have been the father of Zanoah. ch. ( 1 Chronicles 4:18 ) As Zanoah is the name of a town of Judah, this mention of Bithiah probably points to some colonization of the place by Egyptians or by Israelites directly from Egypt.
