Kerioth

 

Kerioth - cities.
(1.) A town in the south of Judah (Josh. 15:25). Judas the traitor was probably a native of this place, and hence his name Iscariot. It has been identified with the ruins of el-Kureitein, about 10 miles south of Hebron. (See HAZOR [4]).


(2.) A city of Moab (Jer. 48:24, 41), called Kirioth (Amos 2:2).
