Sea of Chinnereth or Chinneroth.

1. Afterward the lake of Gennesaret, a corruption of Chinnereth (Joshua 12:3; Joshua 13:27). The district of Chinnereth is called "all Chinnereth" (1 Kings 15:20).

2. A fortified city of Naphtali (Joshua 19:35); probably the same as Tiberius, from which the lake or sea was named in a similar way (Numbers 34:11; John 6:1).
