Meroz

Additional Links

Me´roz, a place in the northern part of Palestine, the inhabitants of which are severely reprehended in , for not having taken the field with Barak against Sisera. It would seem as if they had had an opportunity of rendering some particular and important service to the public cause, which they neglected. The site is not known: Eusebius and Jerome fix it twelve Roman miles from Sebaste, on the road to Dothaim; but this position would place it south of the field of battle, and therefore scarcely agrees with the history.
