Zair

ZAIR . According to the MT [Note: Massoretic Text.] of 2 Kings 8:21 , Joram, in the course of his campaign against Edom, ‘passed over to Zair.’ In the parallel passage, 2 Chronicles 21:9 , the Heb. is ‘passed over with his princes,’ which may be confidently pronounced to be a corruption of the text in Kings. The latter itself is unfortunately not certain so that the identification of the place in question is impossible.
