Achshaph

Additional Links

Town mentioned in Joshua 11:1 and 12:20 as the seat of a north Canaanitish king. Robinson ("Biblical Researches," 3:55, London, 1856) identifies it with the ruins at Kesaf, or Iksaf, a village northwest of Hunin and south of a branch of the Nahr el-Kasimiye (Guérin, "Galilee," 2:269). This would agree with Joshua 11:1, but not with 19:25, as in the latter passage this town must be looked for in the neighborhood of the coast. The identification of Achshaph with the Aksap of the Egyptian list of Thothmes is uncertain.
