Choze'ba (Hebrews Kozeba´, כֹּזֵבָא, lying; Sept. Χωζηβά, Vulg. mendacium), a place whose inhabitants ("men of Chozeba") are named (1Ch 4:22) among the descendants of Shelah, the son of Judah. The name is sufficiently like the CHEZIB (and especially the reading of the Samaritan Codex of that name, כזבה) where Shelah was born (Ge 38:5) to suggest that the two refer to the same place; that, namely, elsewhere (Jos 15:44) called ACHZIB SEE ACHZIB (q.v.) in Judah.
