Zuriel in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
zu'-ri-el (tsuri'-el, "my rock is El (God)"): Prince of the
house of Merari (Nu 3:35).
The word tsur, "rock," occurs also in the compound names
Elizur (Nu 1:5), Zurishaddai (Nu 1:6, etc.) and Pedahzur (Nu
1:10). Gray, Numbers 6, says that a Sabean name Suri'addana is
found in an inscription said to be of the 8th century BC, or
somewhat carrier (Hommel, Ancient Hebrew Tradition, 320), and
bartsur, in a Zinjirli inscription of the 8th century BC
(Panammu Inscr., 1. 1), and that possibly the Old Testament
place-name "Beth-zur" should be added (Josh 15:58; 1 Ch 2:45;
2 Ch 11:7; Neh 3:16).
