Mearah [EBD]

a cave, a place in the northern boundary of Palestine (Josh. 13:4). This may be the cave of Jezzin in Lebanon, 10 miles east of Sidon, on the Damascus road; or probably, as others think, Mogheirizeh, north-east of Sidon.

Arah [NAVE]

ARAH
1. Son of Ulla, 1 Chr. 7:39.
2. An Israelite, whose descendants returned from Babylon, Ezra 2:5; Neh. 7:10.
Probably identical with Arah in Neh. 6:18.

Mearah [NAVE]

MEARAH
Josh. 13:4

ARAH [SMITH]

(wayfaring).
  1. An Asherite, of the sons of Ulla. (1 Chronicles 7:39)
  2. The sons of Arah returned with Zerubbabel in number 775 according to (Ezra 2:5) but 652 according to (Nehemiah 7:10) (B.C. 536.) One of his descendants, Shechaniah, was the father-in-law of Tobiah the Ammonite. (Nehemiah 6:18)

MEARAH [SMITH]

(a cave), a place named in (Joshua 13:4) only. The word means in Hebrew a cave, and it is commonly assumed that the reference is to some remarkable cavern in the neighborhood of Zidon.

ARAH [ISBE]

ARAH - a'-ra ('arach, "traveler"?): (1) The son of Ulla, an Asherite (1 Ch 7:39). (2) The head of a family that returned from the exile with Zerubbabel (Ezr 2:5; Neh 7:10). He is sometimes identified with Arah of Neh 6:18 whose grand-daughter became the wife of Tobiah, the Ammonite who tried to thwart Nehemiah in rebuilding Jerusalem.

MEARAH [ISBE]

MEARAH - me-a'-ra (me`arah; omitted in the Septuagint): A town or district mentioned only in Josh 13:4, as belonging to the Zidonians. The name as it stands means "cave." If that is correct it may be represented by the modern village Mogheiriyeh, "little cave," not far from Sidon. Perhaps, however, we should find in the word the name of a Sidonian city, with the preposition min, that has suffered change in transcription. Septuagint reads "from Gaza"; but Gaza is obviously too far to the South.
