a sandy place, an ancient royal city of the Canaanites, on the south-western border of the plain of Esdraelon, 4 miles south of Megiddo. Its king was conquered by Joshua (12:21). It was assigned to the Levites of the family of Kohath (17:11-18; 21:25). It is mentioned in the song of Deborah (Judg. 5:19). It is identified with the small modern village of Ta'annuk.
taanach was worn out with executing her orders, and Schahabarim never left her.
Another letter from taanach belongs to the same general period.
She received him in her gardens under a large sycamore tree, amid pillows of yellow leather, and with taanach beside her.
The kings came and fought, then fought the kings of Canaan in taanach, by the waters of Megiddo they took no gain of money.
But taanach set up before her a copper mirror, which was so broad and high that she could see herself completely in it.
At taanach, Sellin found a strong city wall, but did not attempt to trace it about the tell.
In the ruins of taanach is found an interesting letter, sent to the governor of the town by an officer at Megiddo.
Some of them were important centres of influence, such as Bethhoron, Shechem, and taanach.
This is evidently the present Ezbba, a mud village two miles north of taanach, and three miles and a quarter south-east of Lejjn.
Apart from the tablets found at Lachish and taanach, several were unearthed at Jericho, uninscribed and ready for use.
