Has'rah (Heb. Chasrah', חִסרָה, poverty; Sept. Ε᾿σσεπί v.r. Α᾿ράς, Vulg. Hasra), the father (or mother) of Tikbath, and grandfather of Shallum, which last was husband of Huldah the prophetess (2Ch 34:22). The parallel passage (2Ki 22:14) gives the name, prob. by transposition, in the form HARHAS (חִרחִס Sept. Α᾿ράς,Vulg. Araas). Hasrah is said to have been "keeper of the wardrobe," perhaps the sacerdotal vestments; if, indeed, that epithet does not rather refer to — Shallum. B.C. considerably ante 623.
