Cozeba (Achzib)

COZEBA (ACHZIB) kō ze’ bə (כֹזֵבָ֗א, falsehood, KJV CHOZEBA, 1 Chron 4:22.) A small village located in the uplands of Judea, perhaps identifiable with Khirbet ed-Dilb, where pottery from the Early Iron Age has been found. Some scholars identify it with ACHZIB, a town on the border of the Shephelah and central Judah, perhaps CHEZIB (Gen 38:5). It may possibly be identified with Tell el-Beida, three m. W of Adullam.
