za - nō´a ( זנוח , zānōaḥ ; Codex Vaticanus Τανώ , Tanṓ ; Codex Alexandrinus Ζανώ , Zanṓ ):

(1) A town in the Judean Shephelah, grouped with Eshtaol, Zorah and Ashnah (Joshua 15:34 ). The Jews reoccupied the place after the exile (Nehemiah 11:30 ). Here it is named between Jarmuth and Adullam. The inhabitants assisted in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, repairing the valley gate (Nehemiah 3:13 ). Eusebius (in Onomasticon ) places it at Zanna, in the district of Eleutheropolis on the Jerusalem road. It is represented by the modern Zanu'a, about 10 miles North of Belt Jibrin (Eleutheropolis).

(2) (Codex Vaticanus Ζακαναείμ , Zakanaeı́m ; Codex Alexandrinus Ζανώ , Zanṓ ): A place in the mountains ( Joshua 15:56 ) of which Jekuthiel was the "father" or founder (1 Chronicles 4:18 ). It may be identified with Zenūtā , a ruined site on a hill about 12 miles South of Hebron.
