Joshua 13:19 Kiriathaim, Sibmah, Zereth Shahar in the mount of the valley,

ze'-reth-sha'-har (tsereth ha-shachar; Codex Vaticanus Sereda kai Seion, Codex Alexandrinus Sarth kai Sior): A town in the territory of Reuben, "in the mount of the valley," named with Kiriathaim and Sibmah (Joshua 13:19). Perhaps in the name Chammat ec-Cara, attaching to the hot springs near Macherus, there may be some echo of the ancient name; but no identification is possible.

ZA'RETH-SHAHAR, a city in R. about 1 1/2 ms. e. of the Dead Sea, near the mouth of the Zerka Main, is a place called Zara or Sara, a mere heap of stones, which may mark the ancient town site.
