Kerioth - cities. (Hebrew: Kriyot קְרִיּוֹת)

  1. A town in the south of Judea (Joshua 15:25). Judas Iscariot was probably a native of this place, and hence his name Iscariot. It has been identified with the ruins of el-Kureitein, about 10 miles south of Hebron. (See Hazor).
  2. A city of Moab (Jeremiah 48:24,48:41), called Kirioth (Amos 2:2).
