(Heb. Chadattah', חֲדִתָּה . a Chaldaizing form=nova; Sept. omits, Vulg. nova), according to the A.T. one of the towns of Judah in the extreme south "Hazor, Hadattah, and Kerioth, and Hezron," etc. (Joshua 15:25); but the Masoretic accents of the Hebrew connect the word with that preceding it, as if it were Hazor-chadattah, i.e. New Hazor, in distinction from the place of the same name in Joshua 15:23. This reading is expressly sanctioned by Eusebius and Jerome, who speak (Onomast. s.v. Asor) of "New Hazor" as lying in their day to the east of and near Ascalon. (See also Reland, Palcest. p. 708.) But Ascalon, as Robinson has pointed out (Researches, new ed. 2, 34, note), is in the Shefelah, and not in the south, and would, if named in Joshua at all, be included in the second division of the list, beginning at Joshua 15:33, instead of where it is, not far from Kedesh. Still the total (29) in Joshua 15:32 requires as in much abbreviation in the enumerated list of cities in this group as possible. (See HAZOR- HADATTAH).
