mo'-za (ha-motsah; Codex Vaticanus Amoke; Codex Alexandrinus Amosa):
A town in the territory of Benjamin named after Mizpeh and Chephirah (Joshua 18:26). It may be represented by the modern Beit Mizzeh, the heavy "ts" of the Hebrew letter (tsade) passing into the light "z" of the Arabic, a not unusual change. The name means "place of hard stone." The village lies to the North of Quloniyeh (possibly Emmaus), about 4 miles Northwest of Jerusalem.
