(kihssh' ih ahn) Place name meaning, “hard ground.” A town in Issachar allotted to the Gershonite Levites (Joshua 21:28 ). A parallel list calls the town Kedesh (1 Chronicles 6:72 ). It has been suggested that “Kedesh in Issachar” may have arisen from a misreading of “Kishon” for “Kedesh.” The site is uncertain, perhaps modern tell Abu Qudeis, about two miles southeast of Megiddo. See Levitical Cities ; Kedesh .
