Easton's Bible Dictionary
A city of Bashan, in the kingdom of Og (Deuteronomy 1:4
; Joshua 12:4
). It was in the half-tribe of Manasseh (Joshua 13:12
), and as a Levitical city was given to the Gershonites (1 Chronicles 6:71
). Uzzia, one of David's valiant men (1 Chronicles 11:44
), is named as of this city. It is identified with Tell Ashterah, in the Hauran, and is noticed on monuments B.C. 1700-1500. The name Beesh-terah (Joshua 21:27
) is a contraction for Beth-eshterah, i.e., "the house of Ashtaroth."
