Nei-el


Ne’i-el (moved by God), a place which formed one of the landmarks of the boundary of the tribe of Asher. Josh. 19:27 only. It occurs between Jiphthahel and Cabul. If the former of these be identified with Jefát, and the latter with Kabûl, eight or nine miles east-southeast of Akka, then Neiel may possibly be represented by Mi’ar, a village conspicuously placed on a lofty mountain brow, just halfway between the two.
