Hazar Susah

HAZAR SUSAH (hā'zar sū’sa, village of a mare). A town given to Simeon out of Judah (Josh.19.5), but called Hazar Susim, i.e., “village of horses” in 1Chr.4.31. The site is uncertain.


HAZAR-SUSAH hā’ zər sōō’ sə (חֲצַ֥ר סוּסָֽה, station of horses). A city of Simeon in the SW part of Judah (Josh 19:5); called “Hazarsusim” in 1 Chronicles 4:31. There Solomon kept the horses he brought from Egypt and sold to the Hittites and Syrians (1 Kings 4:26; 9:19; 10:29). The site is possibly modern Sbalat Abu Susein E of the Wadi Far’ah.
