(Hebrews Aznoth' Tabor', תָּבוֹר אִזְנוֹתּ, ears [i.e. summits] of Tabor [comp. Uzzen-Sherah, "Chisloth-Tabor"]; Sept. Ἀζνωθθαβώρ ), a town on the western border of Naphtali, between the Jordan and Hukkok (Joshua 19:34). It is placed by Eusebius (Onomast. s.v. Ἀσανώθ) in a plain not far from Diocesarea. Neither of these notices, however, would allow a position near Tabor, as the name implies; for the territory of Zebulon, at least, intervened. (See TRIBE). They may, however, be somewhat combined in a conjectural locality at the eastern edge of the plain el-Buttauf, in the vicinity of Kurn Hattin.
