Eso'ra (properly LESSRA, Αἰσωρά, Vulg. omits), a place fortified by the Jews on the approach of the Assyrian army under Holofernes (Judith 4:4). The name may be the representative of the Hebrew word HAZOR or ZORAH (Simonis, Onom. N.T. page 19). The Syriac reading (Bethchorn) suggests BETHI-HORON, which is not impossible.
