Bere´a (Acts 17:10), a city of Macedonia, situate on the river Astraeus, not far from Pelia, towards the south-west, and near Mount Bermius. It was afterwards called Irenopolis, and is now known by the name of Boor. Paul and Silas withdrew to this place from Thessalonica; and the Jewish residents are described as more ingenuous, and of a better disposition (not 'more noble,' as in the Authorized Version) 'than those of Thessalonica,' in that they diligently searched the Scriptures to ascertain the truth of the doctrines taught by the Apostles.
