[some Zere'rath], or rather .ZER'ERA (Heb. Tsererah', צְרֵרָה , with ה local added, Tserera'thah, צְרֵרָתָה, to Zererah, perh. an interchange for Zeredah, as some MSS and versions read; Sept. Ταγαραγαθά v.r. καὶ συνηγμένη; Vulg. omits), a place mentioned (Judges 7:22) in describing the rout of the Midianites before Gideon: "And the host [camp] fled to [as far as] Beth-shittah in [towards] Zererath [Zererah], and [i.e. even] to [as far as] the border of Abel-meholah, unto [upon] Tabbath," It appears to have been the same place in the Jordan valley elsewhere called. Zeredathah (q.v.) or Zaretan (q.v.), but not Zereda (q.v.).
