Libnah

Libnah

Libnah, ( _he. 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. [ Cf. the excavation's website ( [http://www.zeitah.net/overview.html The Zeitah Excavations - Introduction] )]
