ak´shaf ( אכשׁף , 'akhshāph , "sorcery," or "fascination"): A city in the northern part of the territory conquered by Joshua. The king of Achshaph was a member of the coalition against Israel under Jabin and Sisera. It is mentioned with Hazor, Megiddo, Taanach, etc., in the list of conquered kings. It is one of the cities marking the boundaries of the tribe of Asher (Joshua 11:1 ; Joshua 12:20 ; Joshua 19:25 ). Several attempts have been made to identify the site of it, but explorers are not agreed as to the identification.
