Kanah

Kanah [N] [H] [S]

reedy; brook of reeds.

  • A stream forming the boundary between Ephraim and Manasseh, from the Mediterranean eastward to Tappuah ( Joshua 16:8 ). It has been identified with the sedgy streams that constitute the Wady Talaik, which enters the sea between Joppa and Caesarea. Others identify it with the river' Aujeh.

  • A town in the north of Asher ( Joshua 19:28 ). It has been identified with 'Ain-Kana, a village on the brow of a valley some 7 miles south-east of Tyre. About a mile north of this place are many colossal ruins strown about. And in the side of a neighbouring ravine are figures of men, women, and children cut in the face of the rock. These are supposed to be of Phoenician origin.
