(bahz' rah) Place name meaning, “inaccessible.” 1. Ancestral home of Jobab, a king in Edom before Israel had a king (Genesis 36:33 ). Isaiah announced a great judgment on Bozrah in which God would sacrifice His enemies (Isaiah 34:6 ). A center of shepherds, it was known for woolen garments. God is pictured as returning from Bozrah with dyed garments as His spoil of victory (Isaiah 63:1 ). Thus He demonstrated His righteousness and power to save from enemies. Jeremiah proclaimed doom on Bozrah (Jeremiah 49:13 ,Jeremiah 49:13,49:22 ), as did Amos (Jeremiah 1:12 ). A major city which at times served as capital of Edom, Bozrah lay about 25 miles southeast of the southern end of the Dead Sea at modern Buseirah. See Jeremiah 48:24 ). It may be equated with Bezer. See Bezer .
