(1.) A town in the Shephelah, or plain country of Judah (Joshua 15:44); probably the same as Chezib of Genesis 38:5 = Ain Kezbeh.
(2.) A Phoenician city (the Gr. Ecdippa), always retained in their possession though assigned to the tribe of Asher (Joshua 19:29; Judges 1:31). It is identified with the modern es-Zib, on the Mediterranean, about 8 miles north of Accho.
