Za-anaim

Za-anaim [N] [E]

(removings ), The plain of, or more accurately, "the oak by Zaanaim," a tree-probably a sacred tree --mentioned as marking the spot near which Heber the Kenite was encamped when Sisera took refuge in his tent. ( Judges 4:11 ) Its situation is defined as "near Kedesh," i.e. Kedesh-naphtali, the name of which still lingers on the high ground north of Safed and two or three miles west of the lake of el-Huleh (waters of Merom). This whole region abounds in oaks.
