Zanoah


Zano’ah (marsh).

1. A town of Judah in the Shefelah or plain, Josh. 15:34; Neh. 3:13; 11:30; possibly identical with Zânû˒a.

2. A town of Judah in the highland district, Josh. 15:46, not improbably identical with Sanûute, about 10 miles south of Hebron.

3. In the genealogical lists of the tribe of Judah in 1 Chron., Jekuthiel is said to have been the father of Zanoah. ch. 4:18. As Zanoah is the name of a town of Judah, this mention of Bithiah probably points to some colonization of the place by Egyptians or by Israelites directly from Egypt.
