Hebrew - Mareshah
MARESHAH

(muhr' ee sshuh) Personal and place name meaning, “place at the top” with two Hebrew spellings. 1. Son of Caleb and founder of Hebron (1 Chronicles 2:42). The Hebrew text apparently refers to this son as first Mesha then Meresha. 2. Member of the tribe of Judah (1 Chronicles 4:21). 3. A Canaanite city incorporated into the Shephelah district of Judah (Joshua 15:44). The city was fortified by Rehoboam (2 Chronicles 11:8). Mereshah was near the site of the battle between the forces of King Asa and the Ethiopian (Egyptian?) commander Zerah (2 Chronicles 14:9-14). Mareshah was home to the prophet Eliezar (2 Chronicles 20:37). Micah foretold the destruction of the city (Micah 1:15). The site has been identified with tell Sandahannah one mile southeast of Beit Jibrin.
