The portion of Asher lay along the seaboard, having Levanon and Zidon on the north, Carmel and the tribe of Issachar on the south, and Zebulun and Naphtali on the east. It was fruitful in grain, wine, oil, and minerals, Genesis 49:20 Deuteronomy 33:24,25 . How much of the Phoenician coast was included is uncertain, Joshua 19:25,28 ; but the Asherites were unable to expel the Canaanites, and dwelt in part among them, Judges 1:31,32 . They are honorably mentioned in the history of David, 1 Chronicles 12:36 , and of Hezekiah, 2 Chronicles 30:11 .
