TIMNAH . 1 . A town in the high region of S. Judah, S. E. of Hebron ( Joshua 15:57 ). It is possible that this was the Timnah visited by Judah at the time of sheep-shearing ( Genesis 38:12 ). Or it may have been 2 . A place on the N. frontier of the tribe of Judah between Beth-shemesh and Ekron ( Joshua 15:10 ). At one time it was counted in the territory of Dan ( Joshua 19:43 ), but at another it was in Philistine possession ( Judges 14:1 ). Here Samson celebrated his marriage. His father-in-law is called the Timnite ( Judges 15:6 ). The town was held by the Hebrews in the reign of Uzziah, but was lost to the Philistines by Ahaz ( 2 Chronicles 28:13 ). It is now identified with Tibneh , on the S. side of the Wady Sarar , 2 miles W. of Beth-shemesh. 3 . For Genesis 36:40 see Timna, 3 .
