Holman Bible Dictionary - Heres
(hee' rehss) Place name meaning “sun.” A mountain pass over which Gideon traveled in returning from his battle with the Midianites (Judges 8:13 ). It is distinct from the more western Mount Heres in Judges 1:35 , often identified with Beth-Shemesh (“house of the sun”). KJV translates Judges 8:13 as “before the sun was up” as compared to NAS, “by the ascent of Heres.” Location of Gideon's pass is not known, though some scholars now locate it as the Ascent of Horus which leads to tell Deir Alla east of the Jordan. Strong manuscript evidence reads “city of Heres” or Heliopolis in Isaiah 19:18 (compare REB, TEV, NRSV). See Heliopolis .



Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Timnath-Heres
TIMNATH-HERES (in Joshua 19:50 ; Joshua 24:30 written Timnath-serah ). A place assigned to Joshua as an inheritance and burying-place ( Judges 2:9 ). It is described as being ‘In Mt. Ephraim, on the N. side of the Mountain of Gaash.’ See next article.

H. L. Willett.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Timnath-Heres
Portion of the sun, where Joshua was buried (Judges 2:9 ). It was "in the mount of Ephraim, in the north side of the hill Gaash," 10 miles south-west of Shechem. The same as the following.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Heres
Sun.
"Mount Heres" (Judges 1:35 ), Heb. Har-heres, i.e., "sun-mountain;" probably identical with Irshemesh in Joshua 19:41 .



Isaiah 19:18 , marg. (See ON .)


Fausset's Bible Dictionary - ir-ha-Heres
"The city of destruction" (Isaiah 19:18). Smitten with "terror" at Jehovah's judgments, Egypt shall be converted to Him. "Five cities shall speak the language of Canaan, and swear to the Lord of hosts." Some think the five are Heliopolis, Leontopolis, Migdol, Daphne (Tahpanhes), and Memphis. Leontopolis is perhaps "the city of destruction," so-called in disparagement, because here Onias, who had failed to get the high priesthood at Jerusalem, built a temple in rivalry of that at Jerusalem which was the only lawful one. Onias read "city of the sun" (ha-heres ), i.e. On or Heliopolis, in the nome (prefecture) of which he persuaded Ptolemy Philometer (149 B.C.) to let him build the temple, in order to tempt the Jews to reside there. He alleged that this site was foreappointed by Isaiah's prophecy 600 years before.

So 16 manuscripts, also Vulgate. The conversion (through the Jewish settlement in Egypt and the Greek Septuagint translation of the Old Testament) of many Ethiopians to the God of the Jews (Acts 2:6; Acts 2:10-11), e.g. Queen Candace's chamberlain whom Philip met on his return from worshipping at Jerusalem, is an earnest of a fuller conversion to come (Zephaniah 3:9; Zechariah 14:9; Revelation 7:9). The "altar" and "pillar" foretold (Isaiah 19:19-20) are memorial and spiritual (Joshua 22:22-26; Genesis 28:18; Malachi 1:11); for one only sacrificial altar was lawful, namely, that at Jerusalem. Alexander the Great, the temporal "saviour" of Egypt from the Persians, was a type of the true Saviour. Onion, a Jewish city in Egypt, is supposed in Smith's Bible Dictionary to be "the city of destruction"; its destruction by Titus being thus foretold.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Har-Heres
(hahr-hee' reess) NRSV reading in Judges 1:35 for Mount Heres, NRSV transliterating har, Hebrew word for mountain. See Heres .



Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Heres
HERES. 1. A mountain from which the Danites failed to expel the Amorites ( Judges 1:34 f.). It is probably connected with Beth-shemesh ( 1 Kings 4:9 , 2 Chronicles 28:18 ) or Ir-shemesh ( Joshua 19:41 ), on the boundary between Judah and Daniel 2:1-49 . In Judges 8:13 (RV [Note: Revised Version.] ) ‘the ascent of Heres’ is mentioned as the spot from which Gideon returned after the defeat of Zebah and Zalmunna. Both the topography and the text of the narrative are doubtful. See also Ir-ha-heres, Timnath-heres, Timnath-serah.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Timnath-Heres
; TIMNATH-SERAH (Tihm' nath-hee' reez; tihm' nath-ssee' ruh) Place of Joshua's inheritance and burial (Judges 2:9 ; Joshua 19:50 ; Joshua 24:30 ). Timnath-Heres means, “portion of the sun,” suggesting a site dedicated to sun worship (Judges 2:9 ). Timnath-Serah means, “remaining portion,” pointing to land given to Joshua following distribution of land to the tribes (Joshua 19:50 ; Joshua 24:30 ). The site is identified with khirbet Tibneh about seventeen miles southwest of Shechem.



Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Timnath Heres
("portion of the sun".) Joshua's city and burial place, previously Timnath Serah, "portion of abundance" (Judges 2:9), the consonants being transposed subsequently, to refer to Joshua's miracle when the sun stood (Joshua 19:50). In Mount Ephraim on the N. side of Mount Gaash. (See GAASH.) Jerome draws our admiration to the fact that "the distributor of possessions chose for himself a mountainous and rugged portion," noble disinterestedness. Christian tradition identifies Timnath Heres with Tibneh on the Roman road from Antipatris to Jerusalem. But Kefr Haris is the more probable site, nine miles S. of Nablus. The Samaritans make it the burial place of Joshua and of Caleb; there are two sacred spots E. of it: namely neby Κifl , "prophet of the division by lot," i.e. Joshua; and neby Culda , possibly a corruption of Caleb. The fact that the Jews venerate a place in Samaria as Joshua's tomb is a presumption in favor of this site.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Kir-Heres
(kuhr-hee' rehss) Believed to be an alternate spelling of Kir-Hareseth found in Isaiah 16:11 ; Jeremiah 48:31 ,Jeremiah 48:31,48:36 . The Greek translation of the name in Isaiah 16:11 suggests that the translators of the Septuagint had a Hebrew text that read Kir-Hadesheth, a name meaning “New City,” which was mistaken for Kir-Hareseth or Kir-Heres. In the context, Kir-Hares (for Kir-Hareseth) is likely the best reading (see Isaiah 16:7 ). The confusion between Kir-Hadesheth and Kir-Hareseth may be due to the similarity of the Hebrew “r” and “d.” The name Kir-Hares may be explained by the loss of the final Hebrew letter “th” from Kir-Hareseth. See Kir-Hareseth .



Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - ir-ha-Heres
IR-HA-HERES . In Isaiah 19:18 the name to be given in the ideal future to one of the ‘five cities in the land of Egypt that speak the language of Canaan, and swear to Jehovah of hosts’; AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘one shall be called, The city of destruction.’ The usually accepted explanation of the passage is that the name ‘city of heres , or destruction,’ or, more exactly, ‘of tearing down ’ (the verb hâras being used of pulling or tearing down cities, altars, walls, etc., Judges 6:25 , Isaiah 14:17 , Ezekiel 13:14 ), is chosen for the sake of a punning allusion to cheres , in Heb. a rare word for ‘sun’ ( Job 9:7 ), the ‘city of cheres ,’ or ‘the sun,’ being a designation which might have been given in Heb. to On, the Heliopolis of the Greeks, a city a few miles N.E. of the modern Cairo, in ancient times the chief centre of the sun-worship in Egypt, and full of obelisks dedicated to the sun-god Ra (‘Cleopatra’s needle,’ now on the Thames Embankment, was originally one of these obelisks, erected by Thothmes iii. in front of the temple of the sun-god at On); and the meaning of the passage being that the place which has hitherto been a ‘city of the sun’ will in the future be called the ‘city of destroying,’ i.e. a city devoted to destroying the temples and emblems of the sun (cf. Jeremiah 43:13 ). [The LXX [Note: Septuagint.] have polis hasedek, i.e. ‘city of righteousness,’ a reading which is open to the suspicion of being an alteration based on 1:26.]

To some scholars, however, this explanation appears artificial; and the question is further complicated by historical considerations. The high priest Onias iii., after his deposition by Antiochus Epiphanes in b.c. 175 ( 2Ma 4:7-9 ), despairing of better times in Judah, sought refuge in Egypt with Ptolemy Philometor; and conceived the idea of building there a temple dedicated to J″ [Note: Jahweh.] , in which the ancient rites of his people might be carried on without molestation, and which might form a religions centre for the Jews settled in Egypt. Ptolemy granted him a site at Leontopolis, in the ‘nome,’ or district, of Heliopolis; and there Onias erected his temple (Jos. [Note: Josephus.] BJ . I. i. 1, Ant . XIII. iii. 1 3, and elsewhere; Ewald, Hist . v. 355 f.), not improbably at Tell el-Yahudiyeh, about 10 m. N. of Heliopolis, near which there are remains of a Jewish necropolis (Naville, The Mound of the Jew and the City of Onias , pp. 18 20). In support of his plan, Onias had pointed to Isaiah 19:18 and its context as a prediction that a temple to J″ [Note: Jahweh.] was to be built in Egypt (Jos. [Note: Josephus.] Ant . XIII. iii. 1 end ). These facts have indeed no bearing on Isaiah 19:18 , supposing the passage to be really Isaiah’s; but many modern scholars are of opinion that Isaiah 19:16-25 (Isa 18:16 25) are not Isaiah’s, and even those who do not go so far as this would be ready to grant that Isaiah 19:18 b (from ‘one shall be called’) might be a later addition to the original text of Isaiah.

The following are the chief views taken by those who hold that this clause (with or without its context) is not Isaiah’s. (1) Duhm and Marti render boldly ‘shall be called Lion-city ( or Leontopolis),’ explaining heres from the Arab [Note: Arabic.] , haris , properly the bruiser, crusher , a poetical name for a lion. But that a very special and fig. application of an Arab. [Note: Arabic.] root, not occurring in Heb. even in its usual Arabic sense, should be found in Heb. is not probable. (2) Dillmann, while accepting the prophecy as a whole as Isaiah’s, threw out the suggestion that Isaiah 19:18 b was added after the temple of Onias was built, cheres , ‘sun’ (so Symm., Vulg. [Note: Vulgate.] , and some Heb. MSS), being the original reading, which was altered afterwards by the Jews of Palestine into heres , ‘destruction,’ in order to obtain a condemnation of the Egyptian temple, and by the Jews of Egypt into tsedek , ‘righteousness’ (LXX [Note: Septuagint.] ), in order to make the prophecy more diatioctly favourable to it. (3) Cheyne ( Introd. to Is . pp. 102 110) and Skinner, understanding Isaiah 19:18 (‘there shall be five cities,’ etc.), not (as is dooe upon the ordinary view) of the conversion of Egyp. cities to the worship of J″ [Note: Jahweh.] , but of Jewish colonies in Egyp. maintaining their national language and religion, suppose Isaiah 19:16-25 to have been written in the latter years of the first Ptolemy (Lagi), c [Note: circa, about.] . b.c. 290, when there were undoubtedly many Jewish settlements in Egypt: the original reading, these scholars suppose with Dillmann, was ‘city of the sun,’ the meaning being that one of these colonies, preserving loyally the faith of their fathers, should flourish even in Heliopolis, the city of the sun-god; the reading was altered afterwards, when the Jews of Palestine began to show hostility towards the Egyptian temple, by the Jews of Egypt into ‘city of righteousness’ (LXX [Note: Septuagint.] ), and then further, by the Jews of Palestine, as a counter-blow, into ‘city of destruction’ (Heb. text).

It may be doubted whether there are sufficient reasons for departing from the ordinary explanation of the passage.

2. The same name occurs in the margin of Isaiah 19:18 as the name of the 'city of destruction,' or 'city of the sun' in Egypt.

Easton's Bible Dictionary - Irha-Heres
According to some MSS., meaning "city of destruction." Other MSS. read 'Irhahares ; Rendered "city of the sun", Isaiah 19:18 , where alone the word occurs. This name may probably refer to Heliopolis. The prophecy here points to a time when the Jews would so increase in number there as that the city would fall under their influence. This might be in the time of the Ptolemies. (See ON .)
