Jeremiah 48:24 and on Kerioth, and on Bozrah, and on all the cities of the land of Moab, far or near.

be'-zer (betser; Bosor, "strong"):

(1) A city of refuge, set apart by Moses for the Reubenites and located in the "plain country" (or table-land, Mishor) East of the Jordan, later assigned to this tribe by Joshua (Deuteronomy 4:43 Joshua 20:8). The same city was assigned by lot as place of residence to the children of Merari of the Levite tribe (Joshua 21:36 1 Chronicles 6:63, 78). Driver, HDB, suggests the identity of Bezer with Bozrah (Septuagint, Bosor) (Jeremiah 48:24). Besheir has been suggested as the present site. According to the manuscript it was fortified by Mesha.

(2) A son of Zophah of the house of Asher (1 Chronicles 7:37).
