Janoah

Janohah, resting; tarrying; deriving

Smith's Bible Dictionary
Janoah

(rest), a place apparently in the north of Galilee, or the "land of Naphtali," --one of those taken by Tiglath-pileser in his first incursion into Palestine. (2 Kings 15:29) No trace of it appears elsewhere.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Or Jano'hah, rest.

(1.) A town on the north-eastern border of Ephraim, in the Jordan valley (Joshua 16:6, 7). Identified with the modern Yanun, 8 miles south-east of Nablus.

(2.) A town of Northern Palestine, within the boundaries of Naphtali. It was taken by the king of Assyria (2 Kings 15:29).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
JANOAH

ja-no'-a (yanoach, "resting-place"):

(1) A place named on the eastern boundary of Ephraim (Joshua 16:6 f; the King James Version "Janohah"). Eusebius, Onomasticon (s.v. "Jano") places it in Akrabattine, 12 Roman miles East of Neapolis (Nablus). This points definitely to Khirbet Yanun. On a hill near by, the Moslems show the Maqam of Neby Nun, the father of Joshua.

(2) A town in the uplands of Naphtali, mentioned as having been captured and depopulated by Tiglathpileser. It is named with Abel-beth-maacah and Kedesh (2 Kings 15:29). It may be identical with Yanuch, a village about 6 miles East of Tyre.
