Easton's Bible Dictionary

Zanoah:

marsh. (1.) A town in the low country or shephelah of Judah, near Zorah (Jos 15:34). It was re-occupied after the return from the Captivity (Neh 11:30). Zanu'ah in Wady Ismail, 10 miles west of Jerusalem, occupies probably the same site.

(2.) A town in the hill country of Judah, some 10 miles to the south-west of Hebron (Jos 15:56).

Zanoah:

forgetfulness; desertion

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Zanoah:

za-no'-a (zanoach; Codex Vaticanus Tano; Codex Alexandrinus Zano):

(1) A town in the Judean Shephelah, grouped with Eshtaol, Zorah and Ashnah (Jos 15:34). The Jews reoccupied the place after the exile (Ne 11:30). Here it is named between Jarmuth and Adullam. The inhabitants assisted in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, repairing the valley gate (Ne 3:13). Eusebius (in Onomasticon) places it at Zanna, in the district of Eleutheropolis on the Jerusalem road. It is represented by the modern Zanu‘a, about 10 miles North of Belt Jibrin (Eleutheropolis).

(2) (Codex Vaticanus Zakanaeim; Codex Alexandrinus Zano): A place in the mountains (Jos 15:56) of which Jekuthiel was the "father" or founder (1Ch 4:18). It may be identified with Zenuta, a ruined site on a hill about 12 miles South of Hebron.



Written by W. Ewing

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Zanoah:

(marsh).

(1.) A town of Judah in the Shefelah or plain (Joshua 15:34; Nehemiah 3:13; 11:30) possibly identical with Zanu'a.

(2.) A town of Judah in the highland district (Joshua 15:56) not improbably identical with Sanute, about 10 miles south of Hebron.

(3.) In the genealogical lists of the tribe of Judah in 1 Chronicles, Jekuthiel is said to have been the father of Zanoah (1 Chronicles 4:18). As Zanoah is the name of a town of Judah, this mention of Bithiah probably points to some colonization of the place by Egyptians or by Israelites directly from Egypt.
