Cinnereth: A harp, one of the "fenced cities" of Naphtali
(Joshua 19:35) comp.
(Deuteronomy 3:17) It also denotes, apparently, a district which may have taken
its name from the adjacent city or lake of Gennesaret, anciently
called "the sea of Chinnereth" (q.v.), and was probably that enclosed
district north of Tiberias afterwards called "the plain of
Gennesaret." Called Chinneroth (R.V., Chinnereth)
(Joshua 11:2) The
phrase "all Cinneroth, with all the land of Naphtali" in
(1 Kings 15:20)
is parallel to "the store-houses of the cities of Naphtali" (R.V.
(2 Chronicles 16:4)
