(See CHEZIB.) The descendants of Shelah, Judah's son, are called "the men of Chozeba, ... and these are ancient things" (1 Chronicles 4:22). Identified by Conder (Palestine Exploration, Jan. 1875) with Khirbet Kueizibah. The houses are standing to the height of eight or ten feet. The indications on the hill imply great antiquity. How accurate Scripture is in its names and topography! The Talmud mentions that a plain is in front of Chozeba; so Kueizibah has before it the valley of Berachoth (wady Arrub).
