Cities.
  • A town in the south of Judah (Joshua 15:25 ). Judas the traitor was probably a native of this place, and hence his name Iscariot. It has been identified with the ruins of el-Kureitein, about 10 miles south of Hebron. (See HAZOR [4]).

  • A city of Moab (Jeremiah 48:24,41 ), called Kirioth (Amos 2:2 ).
