Now Kenawat, near the S. end of the tract el Lejah, and on the W. slopes of the Hauran mountains (Numbers 32:41-42). Its conqueror Nobah named it after himself (Judges 8:11); the original name has supplanted his name. Translated in 1 Chronicles 2:23 as "Geshur (its people N.W. of Bashan) and Aram (the Aramaeans or Syrians) took the towns of Jair (rather Havoth Jair) from them (the Jairites) with Kenath and the towns thereof, 60 cities," i.e. 23 of the Havoth Jair (i.e. Jair's life, conquered by Jair) and 37 of Kenath and her dependent towns (conquered by Nobah), 60 in all.
