Ja'gur (Heb. Yagur', יָגוּר, place of sojourn; Sept. Ι᾿αγούρ v. r. Α᾿σώρ), a city on the south or Ildumean border of Judah, mentioned between Eder and Kinah (Jos 15:21). "Its name might perhaps indicate that it was one of the fortified camping-grounds of the border Arabs" (Kitto). "The Jagur, quoted by Schwarz (Palest. p. 99) from the Talmud as one of the boundaries of the territory of Ashkelon, must have been further to the northwest" (Smith). The position of the town here considered can only be conjectured as not very far from the Dead Sea. It is not mentioned among the towns set off to Simeon (Jos 19:2-8), though it probably was one of them. It was possibly situated in wady Jurrah, which runs into the southwest end of the Dead Sea.
