Border city of fifth district of Solomon's kingdom (1 Kings 4:12; KJV reads Jokneam). Its location was probably tell Qaimun about eighteen miles south of Haifa on the northwestern corner of the Jezreel Valley. A fortress city, it protected the pass into the Plain of Sharon. It lay on the border, perhaps outside of the tribal territory of Zebulun (Joshua 19:11, spelled Jokneam) and was assigned the Levites (Joshua 21:34, spelled Jokneam). Joshua defeated its king whose kingdom was near Mount Carmel (Joshua 12:22, spelled Jokneam). Egyptian records of Thutmose III, Egyptian Pharaoh about 1504-1450 B.C., mentioned Jokmeam.
