SUR sŏŏr (ס֔וּר). A gate in the city of Jerusalem which prob. led from the palace to the environs of the Temple (2 Kings 11:6). A contingent was posted here as part of the maneuver which successfully dethroned Athaliah. The parallel passage (2 Chron 23:5) reads “Gate of the Foundation,” possibly a better reading.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

Those that dwelt in Sur are mentioned along with the inhabitants of Sidon, Tyre, Ocina, etc., as dreading the approach of Holofernes and the Assyrian any (Judith 2:28). The names run from North to South, and Sur immediately follows Tyre (modern Sur]), with which, therefore, it can hardly be identified. No probable identification has been suggested.
