Dictionaries :: Zair

Easton's Bible Dictionary

Zair:

little, a place probably east of the Dead Sea, where Joram discomfited the host of Edom who had revolted from him (2Ki 8:21).

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Zair:

little; afflicted; in tribulation

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Zair:

za'-ir (tsa‘ir; Zeior): When he invaded Edom, we are told that Joram passed over to Zair and all his chariots with him (2Ki 8:21). In the parallel passage (2Ch 21:9), "with his captains" (‘im sarayw) takes the place of "to Zair" (tsa‘irah), probably a copyist's corruption. The place has not been identified. Some have thought that Mt. Seir is intended; others that it means the town of Zoar. Conder suggested ez-Zuweirah, Southeast of the Dead Sea. If Zoar lay in this direction, it is the way by which an invading army might enter Edom.

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Zair:

(small) a place named in 2 Kings 8:21 only, in the account of Joram's expedition against the Edomites. It has been conjectured that Zair is identical with Zoar.
