A'zem (Hebrews E'tsem, עֶצֶם, a bone, in pause A'tsem, עָצֶם; Sept. Α᾿σέμ v. r. Α᾿σόμ, Ι᾿ασόν), a city in the tribe of Simeon, originally included within the southern territory of Judah, in the neighborhood of Balah (or Bilhah) and Eltolad (or Tolad) (Jos 15:29; Jos 19:3; 1Ch 4:29, in which last passage it is Anglicized "Ezem," Sept. Βοασόμ v. r. Αἰσέμ). These notices afford only a slight ground for a conjectural location, perhaps in the great plain at the south-west extremity of the tribe, possibly at the ruins on Tell Akhmar (Van de Velde, Map).
