Easton's Bible Dictionary [1]

  • A town in the north of Asher ( Joshua 19:28 ). It has been identified with 'Ain-Kana, a village on the brow of a valley some 7 miles south-east of Tyre. About a mile north of this place are many colossal ruins strown about. And in the side of a neighbouring ravine are figures of men, women, and children cut in the face of the rock. These are supposed to be of Phoenician origin.

    KANAH . 1. A ‘brook’ or wady in the borders of Ephraim (  Joshua 16:8;   Joshua 17:9 ) which has been identified (doubtfully) with Wady Kanah near Shechem ( Nâblus ). 2 . A town in the northern boundary of Asher (  Joshua 19:28 ), possibly to be identified with the modern Kana , a short distance S.E. of Tyre.

    Smith's Bible Dictionary [3]

    Ka'nah. (A Place Of Reeds).

    1. One of the places which formed the landmarks of the boundary of Asher; apparently next to Zidon-rabbah, or "great Zidon."  Joshua 19:28.

    2. The river, a stream falling into the Mediterranean, which formed the division between the territories of Ephraim and Manasseh, the former on the sought, the latter on the north.  Joshua 16:8;  Joshua 17:9.

    Fausset's Bible Dictionary [4]

    1. A bound of Asher, next "great Zidon" ( Joshua 19:28), Perhaps Ain Kana, eight miles S.E. of Sidon (Saida).

    2. The river dividing between Manasseh on the N. and Ephraim on the S. ( Joshua 16:8;  Joshua 17:9). Wady Kanah is too far S. Wady Khassab, "the reedy stream," beginning at Nablus, is more in the right position, and means like Kanah "reedy."

    People's Dictionary of the Bible [5]

    Kanah ( Kâ'Nah ), Place Of Reeds. 1. A town in the district of Asher,  Joshua 19:28; now a village, ʾAin Kana, six miles southeast of Tyre. 2. A river forming the boundary between Ephraim and Manasseh.  Joshua 16:8;  Joshua 17:9.

    American Tract Society Bible Dictionary [6]

    1. A brook which separated Ephraim and Manasseh, and fell into the Mediterranean north of Joppa,  Joshua 16:8   17:9 .

    2. A town in the tribe of Asher,  Joshua 19:24,28 . See Cana .

    kā´na ( קנה , ḳānāh , "reeds"):

    (1) The name of a "brook," i.e. wādy , or "torrent bed," which formed part of the boundary between Ephraim and Manasseh (  Joshua 16:8;  Joshua 17:9 ). The border of Ephraim went out westward from Tappuah to the brook Kanah, ending at the sea; the border of Manasseh from Tappuah, which belonged to Ephraim, "went down unto the brook of Kanah, southward of the brook." There seems no good reason to doubt the identification of "the brook Kanah" with the modern Wādy Kanah . The transition from the heavy to the lighter k is easy, so the phonetic difficulty is not serious. The stream rises in the Southwest of Shechem, flows through Wādy Ishkar , and, joining the ‛Aujeh , reaches the sea not far to the North of Jaffa. Guerin, influenced, apparently, by the masses of reeds of various kinds which fill the river, argues in favor of Nahr el - Fāliḳ , to the North of Arsūf . He identifies it with Nahr el - Kaṣab , "river of reeds," mentioned by Beha ed-Din, the Moslem historian. But this last must be identified with Nahr el - Mafjir , 13 miles farther North, too far North for "the brook Kanah."

    (2) A town on the northern boundary of Asher ( Joshua 19:28 ), probably identical with the village of Ḳana , about 7 miles Southeast of Tyre ( SWP , I, 51, 64, Sh I).
