The meaning of Zanoah in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

za-no'-a (zanoach; Codex Vaticanus Tano; Codex Alexandrinus Zano):

(1) A town in the Judean Shephelah, grouped with Eshtaol, Zorah and Ashnah (Joshua 15:34). The Jews reoccupied the place after the exile (Nehemiah 11:30). Here it is named between Jarmuth and Adullam. The inhabitants assisted in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, repairing the valley gate (Nehemiah 3:13). Eusebius (in Onomasticon) places it at Zanna, in the district of Eleutheropolis on the Jerusalem road. It is represented by the modern Zanu'a, about 10 miles North of Belt Jibrin (Eleutheropolis).

(2) (Codex Vaticanus Zakanaeim; Codex Alexandrinus Zano): A place in the mountains (Joshua 15:56) of which Jekuthiel was the "father" or founder (I Chronicles 4:18). It may be identified with Zenuta, a ruined site on a hill about 12 miles South of Hebron.
