Kanah of Asher

Resource Toolbox

The modern village Kana, which has usually been identified with this site, lies seven and a quarter miles south-east of Tyre; but this is too far south for the requirements of the Biblical account (Joshua 19:28). The antiquities in the vicinity, including the remarkable figures on the rocks, are described in the Memoirs accompanying the Ordnance Survey (1:64). A more probable position is that of Ain Kanah, "twenty miles farther north, on the edge of the hills, ten miles inland, but in sight of Sidon" (Tristram, Bible Places, page 293; where, however, the author confounds the description of this with that of the foregoing; see his Land of Israel, page 58). It lies beyond the limits of the Ordnance Survey.
