uz´en - shē´ḗ - ra ( שׁארה אזּן , 'uzzēn she'ĕrāh ; Septuagint, instead of a place-name, reads καὶ υἱοῖ Ὀζάν, Σεηρά , kaı́ huioı́ Ozán , Seērá , "and the sons of Ozan, Sheera"; the King James Version Uzzen-sherah , uzzen-she'ra): As it stands in Massoretic Text this is the name of a town built by Sheerah, daughter of Ephraim, to whom is attributed also the building of the two Beth-horons ( 1 Chronicles 7:24 ). No satisfactory identification has been proposed. Septuagint suggests that the text may have been tampered with.
