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 appears from 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 (Joshua 12 :: 3 ), 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.
