Then Joshua and all Israel with him moved on from Makkedah to Libnah and attacked it (Josh. 10: 29) In the western foothills: …Libnah, Ether, Ashan… (Josh. 15: 33-42) So to the descendants of Aaron the priest they gave Hebron (a city of refuge for one accused of murder), Libnah (Josh. 21: 13) The Tel Burna Archaeological Project
