Return to Index

Achzib – falsehood.

(1.) A town in the Shephelah, or plain country of Judah (Josh. 15:44); probably the same as Chezib of Gen. 38:5 = Ain Kezbeh.

(2.) A Phoenician city (the Gr. Ecdippa), always retained in their possession though assigned to the tribe of Asher (Josh. 19:29; Judg. 1:31).

It is identified with the modern es-Zib, on the Mediterranean, about 8 miles north of Accho.
