(Heb. Beyth-A nath', בֵּיתאּעֲנָה, house of response; Sept. Βηθανάθ v. r. Βαιθθαμέ and Βαιθανάχ ), one of the "fenced cities" of Naphtali, named with Bethshemesh (Joshua 19:38); from neither of which were the Canaanites expelled, although made tributaries (Judges 1:33). It is mentioned by Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Βαθμά, Bethnath), who, however, elsewhere (s.v. Βηθαναθά , Bethana) speak of a village (apparently in Asher, ib. s.v. Ἀνείρ, Aniel) called Betanaea (Βαταναία, Bathanasea; Βαιτοαναία , Betoanea), fifteen miles eastward of Caesarea (Diocaesarea or Sepphoris), and reputed to contain medicinal springs. It is perhaps the present village Ainata, north of Bint-Jebeil (Van de Velde, Beten.
