Hazor (hâ'sôr), enclosure. 1. The city of King Jabin: destroyed by Joshua, Joshua 11:1; Joshua 11:10-11; given to Naphtali, Joshua 19:36; again possessed by the Canaanites, Judges 4:2. who had for its king Jabin—a generic reigned in Hazor and whose general was Sisera. It was fortified by Solomon, 1 Kings 9:15; its people were carried into captivity by Tiglath-pileser. 2 Kings 15:29. The city appears to have been situated on a hill in the midst of a plain, and was a stronghold. Joshua 11:4; Judges 4:3. 2. A city in the south of Judah; probably should be written Hazor-ithman, Joshua 15:23. 3. Another town of Judah; called Hazor-hadattah, or New Hazor. Josh. 15:25. 4 Hezron, which is Hazor, Joshua 15:25; rendered by Canon Cook "Kerioth Hezron, which is Hazor." It is supposed to have been the home of Judas Iscariot, the man of Kerioth, Matthew 10:4; Conder suggested Kheshram, north of Beer-sheba, as the site of this Hazor.
