sḗ - ı̄´ra , sē´i - ra ( השׂעירה , ha - se‛ı̄rāh ; Codex Vaticanus Σετειρωθά , Seteirōthá ; Codex Alexandrinus Σεειρῶθα , Seeirṓtha ; the King James Version, Seirath ): The place to which Ehud escaped after his assassination of Eglon, king of Moab ( Judges 3:26 ). The name is from the same root as the foregoing, and probably applied to some shaggy forest. The quarries by which he passed are said to have been by Gilgal (Judges 3:19 ), but there is nothing to guide us to an identification. Eusebius, in Onomasticon , gives the name, but no indication of the site.
