The 1901 Jewish Encyclopedia
One of the stations of the Israelites in the wilderness, indicated as the end of the thirty-eighth year of wandering (Numbers 21:12; Deuteronomy 2:13-14). The Targum of pseudo-Jonathan renders the name by "valley where willows grow," and thus apparently etymologizes it by the Talmudic , which is confirmed by the Septuagint reading Ζάρετ. The location of Zered is given as east of the Jordan on the border between Moab and Edom before one crosses the River Arnon. Most modern scholars, including Dillmann, identify it with the Wadi Karak, a deep and narrow ravine running northwest to the Dead Sea.
