a city of the kingdom of Israel ( 2 Chronicles 13:19 ).
(old ), a town which, with its dependent villages, was one of the three taken from Jeroboam by Abijah. ( 2 Chronicles 13:19 )
jesh'-a-na, je-sha'-na (yeshanah):
A town named with Bethel and Ephron among the places taken by Abijah from Jeroboam (2 Chronicles 13:19). Most scholars are agreed that the same name should be read instead of ha-shen, in 1 Samuel 7:12. It is probably identical with the Isanas, of Josephus (Ant., XIV, xv, 12). It is represented by the modern `Ain Sinia, 3 1/4 miles North of Bethel, with a spring and interesting ancient remains.
