Misrephoth-maim
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A location near the southern border of the territory of Sidon where Joshua and his army pursued the coalition of Canaanite kings (Josh 11:8). The site is also mentioned in the description of Canaanite regions that were not completely conquered (Josh 13:6). Since the Litani River forms a natural boundary in this area, it is possible that the river is Misrephoth-Maim.
