Kanah

Kanah: reedy; brook of reeds.

A stream forming the boundary between Ephraim and Manasseh, from the Mediterranean eastward to Tappuah (). It has been identified with the sedgy streams that constitute the Wady Talaik, which enters the sea between Joppa and Caesarea Maritima. Others identify it with the river Aujeh.

A town in the north of Asher (). It has been identified with 'Ain-Kana, a village on the brow of a valley some 7 miles south-east of Tyre. About a mile north of this place are many colossal ruins strown about. And in the side of a neighbouring ravine are figures of men, women, and children cut in the face of the rock. These are supposed to be of Phoenician origin.
