Meroz

Meroz [N] [H] [S]

a plain in the north of Palestine, the inhabitants of which were severely condemned because they came not to help Barak against Sisera ( Judges 5:23 : comp 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.
