Zoar

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Zoar : small, a town on the east or south-east of the Dead Sea, to which Lot and his daughters fled from Sodom (Genesis 19:22,23). It was originally called Bela (Genesis 14:2,8). It is referred to by the prophets Isaiah (Genesis 15:5) and Jeremiah (Genesis 48:34). Its ruins are still seen at the opening of the ravine of Kerak, the Kir-Moab referred to in 2 Kings 3, the modern Tell esh-Shaghur.
