Janoah:

or Jano'hah, rest. (1.) A town on the north-eastern border of Ephraim, in the Jordan valley (Jos 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 (2Ki 15:29).

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Janoah:

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

(1) A place named on the eastern boundary of Ephraim (Jos 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 (2Ki 15:29). It may be identical with Yanuch, a village about 6 miles East of Tyre.

Written by W. Ewing

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.
