Zereda (zĕr'e-dah), cooling. A place in Ephraim, in the plain of Jordan. 1 Kings 11:26. Possibly it is the same as Zaretan, Joshua 3:16; Zererath, Judges 7:22, R. V., "Zererah;" Zartanah, 1 Kings 4:12, R. V., "Zarethan;" Zeredathah, 2 Chronicles 4:17, R. V., "Zeredah;" and Zarthan, 1 Kings 7:46. There seems to be much confusion about these names, but the Pal. Memoirs suggest as the site of Zereda, Surdah, 2½ miles northwest of Beitin (Bethel).
