Zereth-Shahar

ZERETH-SHAHAR

ze'-reth-sha'-har (tsereth ha-shachar; Codex Vaticanus Sereda kai Seion, Codex Alexandrinus Sarth kai Sior):

A town in the territory of Reuben, "in the mount of the valley," named with Kiriathaim and Sibmah (Joshua 13:19). Perhaps in the name Chammat ec-Cara, attaching to the hot springs near Macherus, there may be some echo of the ancient name; but no identification is possible.
