Achzib

ACHZIB ăk’ zĭb (אַכְזִ֖יב, lying, deceptive, disappointing). 1. A boundary city of Asher on the Mediterranean coast (Josh 19:29) from which the Asherites were not able to drive out the Canaanites with whom they then lived (Judg 1:31). Eusebius places Achzib on the road from Ptolemais to Tyre. In NT times it was called Ecdippa, now identified with modern ez-Zib, eleven m. from Acco.
