Ashteroth Karnaim


Ash’teroth Karna’im (Ashteroth of the two horns or peaks), a place of very great antiquity, the abode of the Rephaim. Gen. 14:5. The name reappears but once, as Carnaim or Carnion, 1 Macc. 5:26, 43, 44; 2 Macc. 12:21, 26, in “the land of Galaad.” It is probably the modern Es-Sanamein, on the Haj route, about 25 miles south of Damascus.
