gathering of the people, a city of Ephraim, which was given with its suburbs to the Levites ( 1 Chronicles 6:68 ). It lay somewhere in the Jordan valley ( 1 Kings 4:12 , RSV; but in A.V. incorrectly "Jokneam").
A town in Mt. Ephraim assigned to the Kohathite Levites (1 Chronicles 6:68), named along with Gezer and Beth-horon. Its place is taken by Kibzaim in Joshua 21:22 (in Septuagint here the name is omitted). It is mentioned again in 1 Kings 4:12 (the King James Version wrongly "Jokneam"), where it seems to indicate some position to the East of Ephraim. So far no identification is possible.
