KANAH (Κανά, LXX.).


A town in the N. district of Asher. (Josh. 19.28.) Dr. Robinson recognises it in the large village of Kâna, on the brow of the Wady-‘Ashûr, near Tyre.


A river which divided the district of Manasseh from that of Ephraim (Josh. 16.8, 17.9, 10), probably the river which discharges itself into the sea between Caesareia and Apollonia (Arundinetis; comp. Schultens, Vita Salad. pp. 191, 193), now the Nahr Abu-Zubâra. [E.B.J]
