1. Genesis 36:23. Ptolemy (v. 17, sec. 3) mentions Manychiates W. of Petra:
2. 1 Chronicles 8:6-8; "the heads of the fathers of Geba, they removed them (led them captive, Qeri) to Manahath," "they," namely, Naaman, Ahiah, and Gera, and of these three Gera in particular, "he removed them" (led them captive). Manahath is connected possibly with the Manahethites (1 Chronicles 2:52; 1 Chronicles 2:54) in Judah.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
MANAHATH. 1. Mentioned only in 1 Chronicles 8:5 as the place to which certain Benjamite clans were carried captive. The town is probably identical with that implied in Manahathites (wh. see), with the ManochÃ´ of the Gr. text of Joshua 15:59 , and if the text in Jg. is correct, with the Menuhah of Judges 20:43 RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] . 2. Genesis 36:23 (P [Note: Priestly Narrative.] ), 1 Chronicles 1:40 ‘son of Shobal, son of Seir, the Horite,’ i.e . eponymous ancestor of a clan of Edom, or of the earlier population conquered and absorbed by Edom.
Holman Bible Dictionary
(man' uh hath) Place or personal name meaning “resting place” or “settlement.” 1. Ancestor of the Horite subclan of Edomites (Genesis 36:23 ; 1 Chronicles 1:40 ). 2 . Site, probably outside of Palestine, to which some Benjaminites from Geba were exiled (1 Chronicles 8:6 ). 3 . City of tribal territory of Judah according to earliest Greek text of Joshua 15:59 , there called Manocho, probably el-Malcha in the hill country of Judah three miles southwest of Jerusalem.
