zū´ri - el ( צוּריאל , cūrı̄'ēl , "my rock is El (God)"): Prince of the house of Merari ( Numbers 3:35 ).

The word cūr , "rock," occurs also in the compound names Elizur ( Numbers 1:5 ), Zurishaddai (Numbers 1:6 , etc.) and Pedahzur (Numbers 1:10 ). Gray, Numbers 6, says that a Sabean name Ṣūri‛addana is found in an inscription said to be of the 8th century BC, or somewhat carrier (Hommel, Ancient Hebrew Tradition , 320), and ברצור , barcūr , in a Zinjirli inscription of the 8th century BC (Panammu Inscr., 1. 1), and that possibly the Old Testament place-name "Beth-zur" should be added (Joshua 15:58; 1 Chronicles 2:45; 2 Chronicles 11:7; Nehemiah 3:16 ).
