 מָרֵשָׁה and ( Joshua 15:44) מָרֵאשָׁה proper name, of a location (etymology dubious) in (the Shephelah of) Judah, Micah 1:15 (where named with אַכְזִיבּ etc.), Joshua 15:44 ( id.), compare 2 Chronicles 11:8; 2 Chronicles 14:8; 2 Chronicles 14:9; 2 Chronicles 20:37; so apparently (as proper name, masculine in Geneal. scheme) 1 Chronicles 2:42; 1 Chronicles 4:21. — compare 2 Maccabees 12:35 (Μαρισα), 1 Maccabees 5:66 (read Μαρισα for Σαμαρια, compare Var.
