Hebrew - Hosah
HOSAH

(hoh' ssuh) Personal and place name perhaps meaning, “seeker of refuge.” 1. Coastal city in tribal territory of Asher (Joshua 19:29), probably modern tell Rashidiyeh near Tyre and known in ancient Egyptian and Assyrian texts as Usu. Other biblical geographers would see the fortified city of Tyre as tell Rashidiyeh (Usu) and locate Hosah further from Tyre and the coast. 2. Gatekeeper of the sanctuary under David (1 Chronicles 16:38). He belonged to the priestly clan of Merari (1 Chronicles 26:10). He was in charge of the west gate (1 Chronicles 26:16).
