CHIMNEY (אֲרֻבָּה, H748, actually: lattice), the latticed opening for the escape of smoke. In 2 Esdras 6:4 (KJV, Vulgate) “chimney” is tr. of Lat. caminos (which is the actual source of the word chimney), and in Esdras connotes not the flue or vent but the actual fire place or oven, for this is actually the oldest meaning of the word (Milton, L’Allegro, 111).

kin’-e-reth, kin’-e-roth (kinnereth (De 3:17; Jos 19:35, etc.)), (kinaroth; Codex Vaticanus, Kenereth, Codex Alexandrinus, Cheneroth (Jos 11:2)): Taking the order in which the towns are mentioned, this city seems to have lain North of Rakkath (?Tiberias). It may have occupied the site of el-Mejdel, at the Southwest corner of the plain of Gennesaret. From this city the sea took its Old Testament name (Nu 34:11, etc.).
