Netaim

NETAIM (nĭ-tā'e*chm, plantings). A town of Judah where potters lived and worked for the king (1Chr.4.23). NETAIM nĭ tā’ əm (נְטָעִ֖ים, plantings). A place, prob. in the lowland of Judah, where some royal potters lived (1 Chron 4:23 ASV, RSV). International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915) na’-ta-im, ne’-ta-im, ne-ta’-im neTa`im; Codex Vaticanus Azaeim; Codex Alexandrinus Ataeim): In 1Ch 4:23 the [[King James Version]] reads "those that dwell among plants and hedges," the [[Revised Version]] (British and American) "the inhabitants of Netaim and Gederah." The latter may be taken as correct. Gederah was in the Judean Shephelah. Here also we should seek for Netaim; but no likely identification has yet been suggested.
