Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Smith's Bible Dictionary



(1.) A fortified city, which on the occupation of the country was allotted to Naphtali (Joshua 19:36). Its position was apparently between Ramah and Kedesh, ibid (Joshua 12:19) on the high ground overlooking the Lake of Merom. There is no reason for supposing it a different place from that of which Jabin was king (Joshua 11:1; Judges 4:2; 4:17; 1 Samuel 12:9). It was the principal city of the whole of north Palestine (Joshua 11:10). It was fortified by Solomon (1 Kings 9:15) and its inhabitants were carried captive by Tiglath‐pileser (2 Kings 15:29). The most probable site of Hazor is Tell Khuraibeh.

(2.) One of the "cities" of Judah in the extreme south, named next in order to Kedesh (Joshua 15:23).

(3.) Hazor‐Hadattah is the same as "new Hazor" another of the southern towns of Judah (Joshua 15:25).

(4.) A place in which the Benjamites resided after their return from the captivity (Nehemiah 11:33).
