ZORAH . A town allotted to Judah, according to Joshua 15:33; but elsewhere spoken of as Danite ( Joshua 19:41 , Judges 18:2-3; Judges 18:11 ); specially noted as the home of Samson ( Judges 13:2; Judges 13:25 ), who was buried between Zorah and Eshtaol ( Judges 16:21 ). It was fortified by Rehoboam ( 2 Chronicles 11:10 ), and is mentioned in Nehemiah 11:29 as peopled by Judahites after the Captivity. The gentilic name Zorathites occurs in 1 Chronicles 2:52; 1 Chronicles 4:2 and prob. 1 Chronicles 2:54 (where read Zorathites for Zorites ). Zorah is the modern Sur‘ah on the northern side of Wâdy es-Surar (the Valley of Sorek ) opposite ‘Ain Shems (Beth-shemesh), which lies on the southern side.
