Ziz, Ascent of
Hebrew - Ziz
Ziz -

The cliff of Ziz. The ascent ( ma'aleh ), or pass, by which the hosts of Moab, Ammon, and the Mehunim, according to the announcement of the prophet Jahaziel, proceeded from the Dead Sea to the wilderness of Judah near Tekoa (2 Chronicles 20:16; 2 Chronicles 20:20); "they come up by the ascent of ha-Ziz, and ye shall find them at the head of the wady"; now the pass of Ain Jidy, the route of Arab marauders to the present day. The name appears in Husasah, the tableland above Ain Jidy, between it and Tekua, and may be related to Hazezon Tamar, the ancient name of Engedi (Ain Jidy). Condor (Palestine Exploration Quarterly Statement, Jan. 1875) identifies Ziz with Khirbet' Aziz. Wady Khubara, the main valley S. of Engedi, runs W. toward this ruin to which the ascent, would be by this watercourse.
