1 Chronicles 1:36
- A concubine of Eliphaz son of Esau, and mother of Amalek (Genesis 36:12) it may be presumed that she was the same as Timna sister of Lotan. Ibid. ver. 22, and (1 Chronicles 1:39) (B.C. after 1800.)
- A duke or phylarch of Edom in the last list in (Genesis 36:40-43; 1 Chronicles 1:51-54) Timnah was probably the name of a place or a district. [the following article]
1. A town of Judah (Joshua 15:10). The Philistines took possession of it in the days of Ahaz (2 Chronicles 28:18). It was about 20 miles west of Jerusalem. It has been identified with Timnatha of Dan (Joshua 19:43), and also with Timnath (Judges 14:1, 5).
2. A city in the mountains of Judah (Joshua 15:57)= Tibna near Jeba'.
3. A "duke" or sheik of Edom (Genesis 36:40).

Genesis 36:40; 1 Chronicles 1:51
2. A city in Judah
Joshua 15:10; 2 Chronicles 28:18
3. A city in the mountains of Judah
- A place which formed one of the landmarks on the north boundary of the allotment of Judah. (Joshua 15:10) It is probably identical with the Thimnathah of (Joshua 19:43) and that again with the Timnath, or, more accurately, Timnathah, of Samson (Judges 14:1,2,5) and the Thamnatha of the Maccabees. The modern representative of all these various forms of the same name is probably Tibneh, a village about two miles west of Ain Shems (Beth-shemesh). In the later history of the Jews, Timnah must have been a conspicuous place. It was fortified by Bacchides as one of the most important military posts of Judea. 1 Macc. 9.50.
- A town in the mountain district of Judah. (Joshua 15:57) A distinct place from that just examined.
- Inaccurately written Timnath in the Authorized Version, the scene of the adventure of Judah with his daughter in-law Tamar. (Genesis 38:12,13,14) There is nothing here to indicate its position. It may be identified either with the Timnah in the mountains of Judah No. 23 or with the Timnathath of Samson [No. 1].
1. Heb. Timnathah, which is appropriately rendered in the Revised Version, Timnah, a town in Judah.
2. The town where Samson sojourned, probably identical with "Timnah" (1) (Judges 14:1-18).

1. A city given by some authorities as identical with Timnah, 2
2. Home of Samson's wife (believed by some authorities to be identical with the preceding)
Judges 14:1-2; Judges 14:5; Judges 15:6
[TIMNA, OR TIMNAH, TIMNAH]
the residence of Samson's wife. (Judges 14:1,2,5)
Portion of the sun, where Joshua was buried (Judges 2:9). It was "in the mount of Ephraim, in the north side of the hill Gaash," 10 miles south-west of Shechem. The same as the following.
(portion of the sun) the name under which the city and burial-place of Joshua, previously called Timnath-serah is mentioned in (Judges 2:9) [TIMNATH-GERAH]
or Timnath-serah, image of the sun; numbering of the rest
Remaining portion, the city of Joshua in the hill country of Ephraim, the same as Timnath-heres (Joshua 19:50; 24:30). "Of all sites I have seen," says Lieut. Col. Conder, "none is so striking as that of Joshua's home, surrounded as it is with deep valleys and wild, rugged hills." Opposite the town is a hill, on the northern side of which there are many excavated sepulchres. Among these is the supposed tomb of Joshua, which is said to be "the most striking monument in the country." It is a "square chamber with five excavations in three of its sides, the central one forming a passage leading into a second chamber beyond. A great number of lamp-niches cover the walls of the porch, upwards of two hundred, arranged in vertical rows. A single cavity with a niche for a lamp has been thought to be the resting-place of the warrior-chief of Israel." The modern Kefr Haris, 10 miles south-west of Shechem.
(portion of abundance), the name of the city which was presented to Joshua after the partition of the country, (Joshua 19:50) and in "the border" of which he was buried. (Joshua 24:30) It is specified as "in Mount Ephraim on the north side of Mount Gaash." In (Judges 2:9) the name is altered to TIMNATH-HERES. The latter form is that adopted by the Jewish writers. Accordingly, they identify the place with Kefar-cheres , which is said by Jewish travellers to be about five miles south of Shechem (Nablus). No place with that name appears on the maps. Another identification has, however been suggested by Dr. Eli Smith. In his journey from Jifna to Mejdel-Yaba , about six miles from the former he discovered the ruins of a considerable town. Opposite the town was a much higher hill, in the north side of which are several excavated sepulchres. The whole bears the name of Tibneh .
A city called also Timnath-Heres.
