Adami-nekeb
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A town in lower Galilee that marked the border of Naphtali (Josh 19:33). It is possible that “Adami” and “Nekeb” were separate towns (see the KJV translation of Josh 19:33), or that the two were separate names for the same place. The Talmud gives the later name of Nekeb as Ciyadathah. The name of Nekeb, a town in Galilee, appears in the conquest list of Thutmose III.
