It came into the half tribe of Manasseh, Joshua 17:11; Joshua 21:25; 1 Chronicles 7:29, and was bestowed on the Kohathite Levites. Joshua 21:25. Taanach is almost always named in company with Megiddo, and they were, evidently, the chief towns of that fine rich district, which forms the western portion of the great plain of Esdraelon. 1 Kings 4:12.
