The Definition of the word Zaanaim


"Wanderings; the unloading of tents, so called probably from the fact of nomads in tents encamping amid the cities and villages "of that region, a place in the north-west of Lake Merom, near" "Kedesh, in Naphtali. Here Sisera was slain by Jael, "the wife of" "Heber the Kenite," who had pitched his tent in the "plain [R.V.," "'as far as the oak'] of Zaanaim" (Judg. 4:11)." "It has been, however, suggested by some that, following the LXX. "and the Talmud, the letter b, which in Hebrew means "in," should" "be taken as a part of the word following, and the phrase would" "then be "unto the oak of Bitzanaim," a place which has been" "identified with the ruins of Bessum, about half-way between" Tiberias and Mount Tabor.
