1. The son of Reuel, and grandson of Esau, Genesis 36:13,17 .
2. Son of Judah and Tamar, Genesis 38:30; called Zara in Matthew 1:3 .
3. Son of Simeon, and founder of the Zarhites, Numbers 26:13; called Zohar in Genesis 46:10 .
4. A Cushite king who invaded Judah with an immense army in the reign of Asa, 2 Chronicles 14:9-13 . It is not agreed by interpreters whether he came from Southern Arabia or from Egypt and Ethiopia. Many, however, follow Champollion, who identifies him with Osorchon and Osoroth of the Egyptian monuments and history, the son and successor of Shishak.
