And Hazor, Hadattah, and Kerioth, [and] Hezron, which [is]
] According to the Targum, two cities only are here meant, which reads, "and Hazorhadattah, and Keriothhezron, which is Hazor"; and this reading seems to be right; there were three Hazors in this tribe, one in ( Joshua 15:23 ) , and two more here, which are distinguished; the first is called Hazorhadattah, or new Hazor; of which Jerom says F5, there is a village at this day called Asor, in the borders of Ashkelon, to the east of it, which fell to the lot of the tribe of Judah; the Scripture makes mention of it, calling: it new Asor, to distinguish it from the old; and Keriothhezron is the same with Hezron, ( Joshua 15:3 ) ; and had also the name of Hezron. From this place Judas Iscariot is thought to have his name, being Ishceriot, a man of Keriot.
