kish´i - on , kish´yon ( קשׁיון , ḳishyōn ): A city in the territory of Issachar ( Joshua 19:20 ), given to the Gershonite Levites (Joshua 21:28 ; the King James Version wrongly "Kishon"). The parallel passage in 1 Chronicles 6:72 reads "Kedesh" instead of "Kishion." The true reading is probably קדשׁיון , ḳidhshōn . Conder suggests a likely identification with Tell Abū Ḳedes , not far from Taanach.
