Meroz: A plain in the north of Palestine, the inhabitants of which were
severely condemned because they came not to help Barak against Sisera
(Judges 5:23) comp.
(Judges 21:8-10; 1 Samuel 11:7) It has been identified with
Marassus, on a knoll to the north of Wady Jalud, but nothing
certainly is known of it. Like Chorazin, it is only mentioned in
Scripture in connection with the curse pronounced upon it.
