Concise Bible Dictionary:

1. City in the extreme south of Judah (Josh. 15:23). Supposed by some to refer to Kadesh-barnea.
2. Canaanite city, taken by Joshua, allotted to Issachar, and given to the Levites (1 Chron. 6:72). Called Kishion in Joshua 19:20 and KISHON in Joshua 21:28. Identified with Tell Abu Kudeis, 32° 34' N, 35° 13' E.
3. City in Naphtali, allotted to the Levites, and a city of refuge (Josh. 12:22; Josh. 19:37; Josh. 20:7; Josh. 21:32; 2 Kings 15:29; 1 Chron. 6:76). Called KEDESH-NAPHTALI in Judges 4:6. Identified with ruins at Kades, 33° 7' N, 35° 32' E. It has been supposed that Barak assembled his army, not at Kedesh in Naphtali, but somewhere nearer to Mount Tabor and to the river Kishon, where Sisera had his troops (Judg. 4:10-13). It was possibly at Kadish, 32° 44' N, 35° 33' E.
