Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
JAZER . An Amorite town N. of Heshbon, taken by Israel ( Numbers 21:32 ), allotted to Gad ( Joshua 13:25 etc.), and fortified by it ( Numbers 32:35 ). It lay in a district rich in vines ( Isaiah 16:8 etc., Jeremiah 48:32 ). It is probably represented by Khirbet SÃ¢r , about 7 miles W. of ‘AmmÃ¢n , a mile E. of WÃ¢dy SÃ®r . Judas MaccabÃ¦us took the city, which was then in the hands of the Ammonites ( 1Ma 5:9; Jos. [Note: Josephus.] Ant. XII. viii. 1).
