Chinnereth

(circuit), accurately Cinnareth, a fortified city in the tribe of Naphtali, (Joshua 19:35) only, of which no trace is found in later writers, and no remains by travellers.

ATS Bible Dictionary
Chinnereth

Or CINNEROTH, a town on the west shore of the sea of Galilee, Numbers 34:11 De 3:17 Joshua 11:2 19:35 1 Kings 15:20. It was a "fenced city" of Naphtali, and gave its name to the lake on which it stood. Tiberias is supposed by Jerome to have afterwards occupied its site.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Lyre, the singular form of the word (Deuteronomy 3:17; Joshua 19:35), which is also used in the plural form, Chinneroth, the name of a fenced city which stood near the shore of the lake of Galilee, a little to the south of Tiberias. The town seems to have given its name to a district, as appears from 1 Kings 15:20, where the plural form of the word is used.

The Sea of Chinnereth (Numbers 34:11; Joshua 13:27), or of Chinneroth (Joshua 12:3), was the "lake of Gennesaret" or "sea of Tiberias" (Deuteronomy 3:17; Joshua 11:2). Chinnereth was probably an ancient Canaanitish name adopted by the Israelites into their language.

It may have occupied the site of el-Mejdel, at the Southwest corner of the plain of Gennesaret. From this city the sea took its Old Testament name (Numbers 34:11, etc.).
