place of wasps, a town in the low country of Judah, afterwards given to Dan (Josh. 19:41; Judg. 18:2), probably the same as Zoreah (Josh. 15:33). This was Samson's birthplace (Judg. 13:2, 25), and near it he found a grave (16:31). It was situated on the crest of a hill overlooking the valley of Sorek, and was fortified by Rehoboam (2 Chr. 11:10). It has been identified with Sur'ah, in the Wady Surar, 8 miles west of Jerusalem. It is noticed on monuments in the fifteenth century B.C. as attacked by the Abiri or Hebrews.

Until he ceased, I had hardly noticed zorah herself, standing in the canvas portico.
I found that he was a Danite, and lived with his parents in zorah, and that his name was Samson.
The performance, as the man had said, was about to begin, and already he was giving zorah her signal to go within.
In his sudden wilful way Samson resolved, and his mind once made up no one in zorah could induce him to alter it.
Another hour brought us to Zeytun, a pretty village on the river zorah, with palm gardens and a good patch of cultivated land.
