BOZRAH (‘fortification’). 1 . An Edomite city known only as the place of origin of Jobah, son of Zerah, one of the Edomite kings ( Genesis 36:33 , 1 Chronicles 1:44 ). It was, however, of such importance in the kingdom of Edom that it is coupled with the name of the latter in poetic parallelisms ( e.g. the denunciation in Isaiah 34:6; cf. Jeremiah 49:22 ). The reference in Isaiah 63:1 to ‘dyed garments’ of Bozrah, and in Micah 2:12 to ‘sheep of Bozrah,’ may indicate the industries for which it was noted. The guesses that have been made at its identification are of no importance. 2 . A Moabite city denounced by Jeremiah ( Jeremiah 48:24 ), and also unknown.

R. A. S. Macalister.
