ja-no'-a (yanoach, "resting-place"):
(1) A place named on the eastern boundary of Ephraim (Joshua 16:6 f; the King James Version "Janohah"). Eusebius, Onomasticon (s.v. "Jano") places it in Akrabattine, 12 Roman miles East of Neapolis (Nablus). This points definitely to Khirbet Yanun. On a hill near by, the Moslems show the Maqam of Neby Nun, the father of Joshua.
(2) A town in the uplands of Naphtali, mentioned as having been captured and depopulated by Tiglathpileser. It is named with Abel-beth-maacah and Kedesh (2 Kings 15:29). It may be identical with Yanuch, a village about 6 miles East of Tyre.
