Joshua 19:34 The border turned westward to Aznoth Tabor, and went out from there to Hukkok. It reached to Zebulun on the south, and reached to Asher on the west, and to Judah at the Jordan toward the sunrise.

huk'-ok (chuqqoq): A town on the border of Naphtali named with Aznoth-tabor (Joshua 19:34). It is usually identified with the village of yaquq, which stands on the West of Wady el-`Amud, to the Northwest of Gennesaret, about 4 miles from the sea. This would fall on the boundary of Zebulun and Naphtali, between Tabor and Hannathon (Joshua 19:14). The identification may be correct; but it seems too far from Tabor.

HUK'KOK, 3 ms. n.w. from the sea of Tiberias. Now Yakuk, 76 ms. n. of Jerusalem. It is also spelled Hukok, 1 Chron. 6:75. In Josh. 21:31, Helkath seems to be the same as Hukok of 1 Chron. 6:75.
