What is Judah upon Jordan?
        , a town in Naphtali. Josh 19:34. Why it was so called is not known. Some regard it as an error in the text, but the manuscripts do not prove this; others suppose there was a town, in one tribe, named after another tribe, and refer this to Havoth-jair, see Num 32:41, near the Jordan. Dr. Thomson found a place near Banias marked by ruins and a tomb called by the Arabs Seid Yehuda, "My Lord Judah," which he believes is the site of ancient Judah upon Jordan, with its name perpetuated.
