Zorah

Additional Links
Place of wasps, a town in the low country of Judah, afterwards given to Dan (Joshua 19:41; Judges 18:2 ), probably the same as Zoreah (Joshua 15:33 ). This was Samson's birthplace (Judges 13:2,25 ), and near it he found a grave (16:31). It was situated on the crest of a hill overlooking the valley of Sorek, and was fortified by Rehoboam (2 Chronicles 11:10 ). It has been identified with Sur'ah, in the Wady Surar, 8 miles west of Jerusalem. It is noticed on monuments in the fifteenth century B.C. as attacked by the Abiri or Hebrews.
