Menuhah

MENUHAH. See Nohah. Judges 20:43 (ASV mg.).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

men-u’-ha, men-u’-ka (menuchah, "place of rest"; the King James Version Menuchah): Rendered in Jud 20:43 the King James Version "with ease," the Revised Version (British and American) "at their resting-place." Both, however, have a marginal suggestion which would make the word a place-name, which would then more naturally read "from Nuhah over against Gibeah," thus describing the ground over which the slaughter of the Benjamites occurred. In 1Ch 8:2 the word "Nohah" occurs as that of a Benjamite elan. The place intended is perhaps MANAHATH (which see).
