Kerioth

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Kerioth : cities.

  1. A town in the south of Judah (Joshua 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 (Jeremiah 48:24,41), called Kirioth (Amos 2:2).
