“Neiel ” means moved by God

Neiel : a place which formed one of the landmarks of the boundary of the tribe of Asher. (Joshua 19:27) only. It occurs between Jiphthahel and Cabul. If the former of these be identified with Jefat , and the latter with Kabul , eight or nine miles east-southeast of Akka , then Neiel may possibly be represented by Mi'ar , a village conspicuously placed on a lofty mountain brow, just halfway between the two.
