Ash'erah. (straight). The name of a Phoenician goddess, or rather of the idol itself, (Authorized Version, "grove"). Asherah is closely connected with Ashtoreth and her worship, Judges 3:7. Compare Judges 2:3; Judges 6:25; 1 Kings 18:19. Ashtoreth being, perhaps, the proper name of the goddess, whilst Asherah is the name of her image or symbol, which was of wood.
