KARTAN (PLACE) [Heb qartân (קַרְתָּהן)]. Third levitical city mentioned in the Joshua list for Naphtali (21:32). In 1 Chr 6:61—Eng 6:76 the third Naphtali city is Kiriathaim. Aharoni (LBHG, 105) interprets this as a variation on the same name. Years before, Albright (1945: 72) had argued the same position
KIRIATHAIM (PLACE) [Heb qiryātayim (קִרְיָתַיִם)]. 1. A town in Moab’s tableland assigned to the tribe of Reuben (Num 32:37; Josh 13:19). The Mesha Inscription (line 10) says that Mesha rebuilt Kiriathaim; this town was still in Moabite hands when Jeremiah (48:1, 23) and Ezekiel (25:9) pronounced oracles
