Neih

(Heb. Neah', נֵעָה [with the definite article], the shaking or settlement or descent; Sept. Αννουά [but Vat. MS. omits]; Vulg. Noa), a town in the tribe of Zebulun, on the southern border east of Rimmon (Joshua 19:13). Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Anna) Bpeak only of another place by the same name ten miles Bouth of Neapolis. As Neah is stated to have been not far from Rimmon ("'methoar," i.e., "which pertains to" Neah), it lay perhaps at the modern site Nimrin, a little west of Kurn Hattin (Robinson, Later Researches, page 341, note). (See TRIBE).
