Chinnereth: Lyre, the singular form of the word
(Deuteronomy 3:17; Joshua 19:35) which is also
used in the plural form, Chinneroth, the name of a fenced city which
stood near the shore of the lake of Galilee, a little to the south of
Tiberias. The town seems to have given its name to a district, as
(1 Kings 15:20) where the plural form of the word is used.
The Sea of Chinnereth
(Numbers 34:11; Joshua 13:27) or of Chinneroth
was the "lake of Gennesaret" or "sea of Tiberias"
(Deuteronomy 3:17; Joshua 11:2)
Chinnereth was probably an ancient Canaanitish name adopted by the
Israelites into their language.
