A city of the kingdom of Israel (2 Chronicles 13:19).
Int. Standard Bible Encyclopedia
jesh'-a-na, je-sha'-na (yeshanah): A town named with Bethel and Ephron among the places taken by Abijah from Jeroboam (2 Chronicles 13:19). Most scholars are agreed that the same name should be read instead of ha-shen, in 1 Samuel 7:12. It is probably identical with the Isanas, of Josephus (Ant., XIV, xv, 12). It is represented by the modern `Ain Sinia, 3 1/4 miles North of Bethel, with a spring and interesting ancient remains.
