[many Haze'rim] (Hebrew Chatserim', חֲצֵטַים, villages; Sept. Α᾿σηρώθ, Vulg. flaserim), the name of a place, or perh. rather a general designation of the temporary villages in which the nomade AVITES resided, especially between Gaza and "the river of Egypt" or el-Arish (De 2; De 23). Schwarz suggests (Palestine, p. 93) that these "Hazerim" may be a general designation of the many towns by the name of HAZOR and HAZAR found in this region; if so, these probably all lay near each other; and it is a singular fact that the sites of at least two of them, Hazar-gaddah and Hazar-susah, seem to have been immediately adjoining one another.
