(Hebrews Kozeba´, כֹּזֵבָא , lying; Sept. Χωζηβά, Vulg. mendacium), a place whose inhabitants ("men of Chozeba") are named (1 Chronicles 4:22) among the descendants of Shelah, the son of Judah. The name is sufficiently like the CHEZIB (and especially the reading of the Samaritan Codex of that name, כזבה ) where Shelah was born (Genesis 38:5) to suggest that the two refer to the same place; that, namely, elsewhere (Joshua 15:44) called ACHZIB (See ACHZIB) (q.v.) in Judah.

Chozeba (ADDENDUM):

(1 Chronicles 4:22) is thought by Lieutenant Conder (Tent-Work, 2:336) to be possibly the ruin Kueziba, north-east of Hebron (Quar. Report of "Pal. Explor. Fund," January 1881, page 51); but it is not necessary to distinguish the place from Chezib or Achzib..
