The New John Gill Exposition of the Entire BibleJoshua 15:37
Here begins another list or catalogue of the
cities in the valley or plain. Zenan perhaps is the same with Zaanan,
(Micah 1:11) ;
was so small a city in Judea in the times of the Misnic
doctors, that they say F20 it had but fifty dwellings in it; and Jerom
speaks F21 of a place called Adasa, in the tribe of Judah, in his times
a village near Guphua; it should be Taphna;
of which we nowhere else read; some think it had its
name from some famous exploit done here by one of the tribe of Gad, who
came over with Joshua to assist in the war, as the stone of Bohan the
Reubenite, (Joshua 15:6) .
F20 Misn. Eruvim, c. 5. sect. 6.
