JOKMEAM (PLACE) [Heb yoqmŏʿām or yoqmĕʿām (יָקְמְעָם)]. A levitical city of the Kohathites in Ephraim (1 Chr 6:53—Eng 6:68). In Josh 21:22, the corresponding place in the parallel list is taken by KIBZAIM. According to 1 Chr 23:19 and 24:23, a Hebronite levitical family bore the similar name Jekameam
KIBZAIM (PLACE) [Heb qibṣayim (קִבְצַיִם)]. Third Levitical city in the Ephraim list (Josh 21:22). The parallel city in the Levitical City list in 1 Chronicles is Jokmeam (1 Chr 6:52—Eng 6:68). Albright (1945: 67–68) has argued through a text-critical study that Kibzaim and Jokmeam are individual cities,
Jokmeam. 1. City of Zebulun (1 Kgs 4:12); perhaps the same as Jokneam.SeeJokneam.2. City given to the Kohathite Levites out of Ephraim’s inheritance (1 Chr 6:68). A parallel passage in Joshua 21:22 lists the city as Kibzaim. Its site is unknown.SeeKibzaim.
Kibzaim. One of several cities in Ephraim given to the levitical family of Kohath after the conquest of Canaan (Jos 21:22). It is probably the same as the Jokmeam of 1 Chronicles 6:68, but it is not to be equated with the Jokmeam (kjv Jokneam) of 1 Kings 4:12. Its exact location is unknown.

KIBZAIM. An unidentified city of Mount Ephraim allotted to the Kohathite Levites (Josh 21:22). Chronicles lists Jokmeam in its place (1 Chr 6:68). It is uncertain whether Jokmeam is a corruption of Kibzaim or whether they are names of two Levitical cities.
