Timnath / Timnite

2. A village in the hill country of Judah (Josh 15:57) SE of Hebron stated to be near Gibeah and mentioned also in Genesis 38:12-14 as the destination of Judah when he met Tamar. The frequency and difficulty of the term is compounded by the variations in spelling which possibly can be attributed to minor variations in the speech of the Israelite tribes.
