🔼The name Hazar-susah in the Bible

The graceful name Hazar-susah occurs once in the Bible. It's the name of a town in the area allotted to the tribe of Simeon (Joshua 19:5). By the time the Chronicler was writing, the town was known as חצר סוסים (Hazar-susim; 1 Chronicles 4:31).

🔼Etymology of the name Hazar-susah

The name Hazar-susah obviously consists of two elements. The first part of our name is the same as the noun חצר (haser), meaning village:

The second part of our name is the same as the feminine noun סוסה (susa), meaning mare:

The second part of the name חצר סוסים (Hazar-susim), curiously enough, is the plural form of the masculine noun סוס (sus), meaning horse (or stallion).

🔼Hazar-susah meaning

For a meaning of the name Hazar-susah, NOBSE Study Bible Name List reads Village Of A Mare. Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names appears to be persuaded by the rule in Hebrew that a modifier such as סוס should be translated as a plural in English. The horse, in this case, really means horses in general. Hence Jones reads Village Of Horses.
