MANAHATH

man'-a-hath (manachath; Machanathi):
(1) A place to which certain Benjamites, victims, apparently, of intra-tribal jealousy, were carried captive (1 Ch 8:6). Of this town the Manahathites were probably natives. It is possibly denoted by Manocho which Septuagint adds to the list of towns in Judah (Josh 15:59). This place is named along with Bether (Bittir). The name seems to be preserved in that of Malicha, a large village not far from Bittir, Southwest of Jerusalem. The change of "l" to "n", and vice versa, is not uncommon. The same place may be intended by Menuhah (Jdg 20:43 the Revised Version margin), where the King James Version reads "with ease," and the Revised Version (British and American) "at their resting-place."
(2) One of the sons of Shobal, the son of Seir the Horite (Gen 36:23; 1 Ch 1:40), the "name-father" of one of the ancient tribes in Mt. Seir, afterward subdued and incorporated in Edom.
