Tim´nah or Timnath, an ancient city of the Canaanites (), first assigned to the tribe of Judah (), and afterwards to Dan (); but it long remained in the possession of the Philistines (; ; comp. Josephus, Antiq. v. 8. 5). It is chiefly noted as the abode of Samson's bride, and the place where he held his marriage feast. It is probably represented by a deserted site now called Tibneh, which is about one hour's journey south-west of Zerah, the residence of Samson. Another Timnah lay in the mountains of Judah (; ).
