mas'-re-ka, mas-re'-ka (masreqah; Masekka):
A place mentioned in the list of ancient rulers of Edom (Genesis 36:31), "before there reigned any king over the children of Israel." Masrekah was the royal city of Samlah, son of Hadad (Genesis 36:36; 1 Chronicles 1:47). The name may mean "place of choice vines," but there is nothing to show in what locality it must be sought.
