BEZEK

be'-zek (bezeq; Bezek, Codex Vaticanus, Abiezek):
(1) The city of Adoni-bezek taken by Judah and Simeon (Jdg 1:4 f), in the territory allotted to Judah. It is somewhat doubtfully identified with Bezqah, about 3 miles Northeast of Gezer.
(2) The place where Saul marshaled his army before marching to the relief of Jabesh-gilead (1 Sam 11:8). Eusebius, Onomasticon speaks of two villages of this name 17 Roman miles from Shechem, on the way to Scythopolis. No doubt Khirbet Ibziq is intended. Here, or on the neighboring height, Ras Ibziq, a mountain 2,404 ft. above sea level, the army probably assembled.
