Hebrew - Janoah
JANOAH

(juh noh' uh) Place name meaning, “he rests.” 1. Town in tribal territory of Ephraim (Joshua 16:6-7). It is probably modern khirbet Janun about seven miles south of Nablus. KJV transliterates the Hebrew ah meaning “towards” and so spells Janohah here. 2. City in northern Israel that Tiglath-pileser, king of Assyria (744-727 B.C.), captured from Pekah, king of Israel (752-732 B.C.), about 733 B.C. Its location is uncertain, suggestions including khirbet Janun; Janua, six miles south of Megiddo, and Janoah, nine miles east of Acco. Recently, interpreters have sought to establish a military pattern in the report and locate Janoah at khirbet Niha just south of Kefar Giladi on the road south from Abel-beth-Maacah.
