Zanoah

ZANOAH

za-no'-a (zanoach; Codex Vaticanus Tano; Codex Alexandrinus Zano):

(1) A town in the Judean Shephelah, grouped with Eshtaol, Zorah and Ashnah (Joshua 15:34). The Jews reoccupied the place after the exile (Nehemiah 11:30). Here it is named between Jarmuth and Adullam. The inhabitants assisted in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, repairing the valley gate (Nehemiah 3:13). Eusebius (in Onomasticon) places it at Zanna, in the district of Eleutheropolis on the Jerusalem road. It is represented by the modern Zanu`a, about 10 miles North of Belt Jibrin (Eleutheropolis).

(2) (Codex Vaticanus Zakanaeim; Codex Alexandrinus Zano):

A place in the mountains (Joshua 15:56) of which Jekuthiel was the "father" or founder (1 Chronicles 4:18). It may be identified with Zenuta, a ruined site on a hill about 12 miles South of Hebron.
