HAROSHETH (HAROSHETH OF THE GENTILES):

City supposed to have stood near Hazor, in the northern part of Canaan, afterward known as Upper Galilee, or Galilee of the Gentiles. It was so called on account of the cosmopolitan character of its inhabitants. Harosheth was the home of Sisera, general of the armies of Jabin, King of Canaan, whose seat was Hazor (Judges iv. 2). Here Sisera mobilized the forces (verse 13) that were defeated in the ensuing battle on the banks of the Kishon. Barak and his victorious troops followed the defeated army to Harosheth; "and there was not a man left" (verse 16).
