Zano'ah. (marsh).

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

2. A town of Judah in the highland district, Joshua 15:66, 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.
