Naarah (2)

Resource Toolbox

( נערה , na‛ărāh ); Codex Vaticanus αι κῶμαι αὐτῶν , hai kṓmai autṓn ; Codex Alexandrinus Νααραθά , Naarathá ; the King James Version Naarath ): A town in the territory of Ephraim Joshua 16:7 . It appears as "Naaran" in 1 Chronicles 7:28 (Codex Vaticanus Νααρνάν , Naarnán ; Codex Alexandrinus Νααράν , Naarán ). Eusebius, Onomasticon (s.v. "Noorath") places it 5 Roman miles from Jericho. The name has not been recovered, and no identification is certain. The position would agree with that of el - ‛Aujeh , about 5 miles Northeast of Jericho.
