CHINNERETH . A city ( Deuteronomy 3:17 , Joshua 11:2 [in latter spelt Chinneroth ] Joshua 19:35 ) which gave its name to the Sea of Chinnereth ( Numbers 34:11 , Joshua 12:3; Joshua 13:27 ), the OT designation of the Sea of Galilee. The site of the town is uncertain, but it follows Rakkath (probably Tiberias), and may have been in the plain of Gennesaret (cf. 1 Kings 15:20 ).
