Libnah, in the Bible. 1 Unidentified place in the desert wanderings. 2 Canaanite city, SW ancient Palestine, N of Lachish. It was captured by Joshua.
Libnah, (לִבְנָה) was a town in the Kingdom of Judah. The town of Libnah revolted during the reign of King Jehoram of Judah, according to II Chronicles (21:10), because he "had abandoned [the] God of his fathers."

Josiah, King of Judah, married Hamutal, daughter of Jeremiah of Libnah (1 Chronicles 3:15; 2 Kings 23:31-32;2 Kings 24:17-18; Jeremiah 22:11). Two of their sons, Jehoahaz and Zedekiah also became Kings of Judah. Libnah means whiteness. Libnah was one of the places the Israelites stopped on the Exodus. (Joshua 10:29)

The excavators of Tell Zeitah have suggested it as a possible location of Libnah.
