Mozah

MOZAH mō’ zə (הַמֹּצָֽה). One of the towns belonging to the tribe of Benjamin (Josh 18:26). The locality is uncertain. It prob. was a royal pottery, because the name is stamped on the handles of vessels excavated at Jericho and Tell en-Nasbeh. According to some scholars, the site is at or near the Arab village of Qaluniya, 4 m. NW of Jerusalem on the road to Tel Aviv (S. Cohen). The ancient name may survive in Ḥirbet beit Mizzah, and has been adopted by the Jewish colony of Moşah W of Qaluniya (Qālūnjeh). For the name, cf. 1 Chronicles 2:46.
