JAZER

(jay' zuhr) Place name meaning, “May He help.” Amorite city state Israel conquered while marching across the land east of the Jordan towards the Promised Land (Numbers 21:32). The tribe of Gad rebuilt and settled Jazer (Numbers 32:35; compare Joshua 13:25). Joshua assigned it to the Levites (Joshua 21:39). Isaiah pronounced judgment on Jazer while preaching against Moab (Isaiah 16:8-9). Jeremiah echoed him (Jeremiah 48:32). David found outstanding leaders there (1 Chronicles 26:32). It was also an important city in the period between the Testaments (1 Maccabbees 1 Chronicles 5:8).

Interpreters debate Jazer's exact location. German archaeologists appear to favor tell el-Areme, while Israelis point to khirbet es-Sar about eight miles west of Amman. Others point to khirbet Jazzir about two miles south of es-Salt.
