Uzzen-Sheerah

UZZEN-SHEERAH

uz'-en-she'-e-ra ('uzzen she'erah; Septuagint, instead of a place-name, reads kai huioi Ozan, Seera, "and the sons of Ozan, Sheera"; the King James Version Uzzen-sherah, uzzen-she'ra):

As it stands in Massoretic Text this is the name of a town built by Sheerah, daughter of Ephraim, to whom is attributed also the building of the two Beth-horons (1 Chronicles 7:24). No satisfactory identification has been proposed. Septuagint suggests that the text may have been tampered with.
