International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

(tsochar, meaning uncertain):

(1) Father of Ephron the Hittite (Ge 23:8; 25:9).

(2) "Son" of Simeon (Ge 46:10; Ex 6:15) = "Zerah" of Nu 26:13; 1Ch 4:24.

See Zerah, 4.

(3) In 1Ch 4:7, where the Qere is "and tsochar" for the Kethibh is yitschar, the Revised Version (British and American) "Izhar," the King James Version wrongly "Jezoar."
