Uz'zen-she'rah (Heb. Uzzen' Sheerah', שֶׁאֵָרה אֻזֵּן, oear [i.e. point] of Sherah; Sept. υἱοὶ Ο᾿ζὰν Σεηρά; Vulig. Ozensera) a place in the vicinity of Bethhoiron, founded or rebuilt by Sherah (q.v.), an Ephraim'itess (1Ch 7:24). The name appears to indicate some salient feature of the surface or position. It has been thought to correspond with the present Beit Sira, which is shown in the maps of Van de Velde and Tobler as on the north side of the Wady Suleiman about three miles south-west of Beitûr et- Tahta. It is mentioned by Robinson (in the lists in Appendix to vol. 3 of Bibl. Res. Elsted.], p. 120), and also by Tobler (Dritte Wanderung, p.

188). It is doubtful; however, if the boundary of Ephraimever extended so far south, and hence perhaps we should prefer BeitSirah, a village with two fountains in Wady Budrus, two and a half miles east of Beitalrel-Fohka; or if both these identifications fail, possibly the modern village Sulaj in Wady. Budrus, about one mile north-west of Beitûr et-Tahta (Robinson, Bibl. Res. 2, 250).
