Uzzen Sheerah

UZZEN SHEERAH (ŭz'ĕn-shē'ē-ra, Heb. ’uzzēnshe’erâh, plat of Sherah). A town built by Ephraim’s daughter Sheerah (1Chr.7.24).

UZZEN-SHEERAH uz’ ən she’ ə rə (אֻזֵּ֥ן שֶׁאֱרָֽה). A village built by Sheerah, the daughter of an Ephraimite named Ephraim (1 Chron 7:24; KJV UZZEN-SHERAH). She also built two other villages, Upper Beth-horon and Lower Beth-horon. The sites have not been identified.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

As it stands in Massoretic Text this is the name of a town built by Sheerah, daughter of Ephraim, to whom is attributed also the building of the two Beth-horons (1Ch 7:24). No satisfactory identification has been proposed. Septuagint suggests that the text may have been tampered with.
