Joshua 19:41  (King James Version)
And the coast of their inheritance was Zorah, and Eshtaol, and Irshemesh,

Situated on the frontiers of Dan and Judah, tens miles north from Eleutheropolis, towards Nicoplis, according to Eusebius, not far from Caphar Sorek.

Judges 13:2 Judges 13:25 ; 16:31 18:2 1 Chronicles 2:53 ; 2 Chronicles 11:10

Supposed by some to be the same as Beth-shemesh in the tribe of Judah; but this latter city is evidently distinguished from it by being assigned by the tribe of Judah to the Levites. (ch
21:16 .) Ir-shemesh rendered [polis Sammaus] by the LXX.,
seems to be the same as Emmaus or Nicopolis, 22 miles south-east from Lydda, according to the Old Jerusalem Itinerary.
