a plain in the north of Israel, the inhabitants of which were severely condemned because they came not to help Barak against Sisera (Judges 5:23: compare 21:8-10; 1 Samuel 11:7)

It has been identified with Marassus, on a knoll to the north of Wady Jalud, but nothing certainly is known of it. Like Chorazin, it is only mentioned in Scripture in connection with the curse pronounced upon it.
