Libnah (2)

Some would locate this place at Beit-Jibrin, and others at Ibiza, on the coast road, but Tristram (Bible Places, page 44) and Trelawney Saunders (Map of the O.T.) accept the identification with Arakc el-Menshiyeh, which the Ordnance Map lays down at six and a half miles west of Beit- Jibrin, and the accompanying Memoirs describe thus (3:259): "A mud village on a flat plain, surrounded with arable land, and supplied by three wells. It is of moderate size, with two sacred places. The curious mound north of it is a remarkable feature in the landscape, two hundred and fifty feet high, and consisting of natural rock, but scarped, and appearing to have been artificially made steeper. On the top is a sacred mukdam, with a few hedges of prickly pear. This site is evidently ancient and important. The hills near it are of very white chalk, and the name Libnah signifies milk white.'"
