(ihss' cuh) Personal name perhaps meaning, “they look.” Daughter of Haran and sister of Milcah (Nahor's wife) and Lot. Thus she was an intimate part of the ancestral family of Abraham (Genesis 11:29 ). Tradition has tried to make Iscah another name for Sarah or to say she was Lot's wife. No biblical information gives foundation for such late interpretations.
