KEDESH-NAPHTALI ( Judges 4:6 ; called also ‘ Kedesh Joshua 12:22 ; Joshua 19:37 , Judges 4:9-11 , 2 Kings 15:29 ; and ‘ Kedesh in Galilee ’ in Joshua 20:7 ; Joshua 21:32 , 1 Chronicles 6:76 ). Evidently, from the name meaning ‘holy,’ a sacred site from ancient times; a city of refuge ( Joshua 20:7 ) and a Levitical city ( Joshua 21:32 ). It was the home of Barak ( Judges 4:6 ). It was captured by Tiglath-pileser ( 2 Kings 15:29 ) in the reign of Pekah.

The site is the village of Kedes , one of the most picturesque spots in Galilee; to the E. of the village the ground is strewn with ancient remains. There are several fine sarcophagi and the ruins of a large building, possibly once a Roman temple.
