Naarath


Na’arath (juvenile) (the Hebrew is equivalent to Naarah, which is therefore the real form of the name), a place named Josh. 16:7 only as one of the landmarks on the southern boundary of Ephraim. It appears to have lain between Ataroth and Jericho, in the Jordan valley. Eusebius and Jerome speak of it as if well known to them—“Naorath, a small village of the Jews, five miles from Jericho.”
