Se'irath (Heb. with the art. has-Seirah', הִשַּׂעַירָה, the shaggy; Sept.; Σεειρωθά v.r. Σετειρωθά; Vulg. Seirath), the place to which Ehud fled after his murder of Eglon (Jg 3:26), and whither, by blasts of his cow horn, he collected his countrymen for the attack of the Moabites in Jericho (ver. 27). It was in "Mount Ephraim" (ver. 27), a continuation, perhaps, of the same rough wooded hills (such seems to be the signification of Seir) which stretched even so far south as to join the territory of Judah (Jos 15:10). The definite article prefixed to the name in the original shows that it was a well known spot in its day. — Smith. It is probably the same as Mount Seir (q.v.) just referred to, the Saris of the present day.
