Hazar-shual

Hazar-shual is a place mentioned in the Bible in several passages. In the biblical point of view, we understand that these places were actual locations with historical significance. The name Hazar-shual means village of the jackals in Hebrew (H2705 – חֲצַר שׁוּעַל).

In Joshua 15:28, Hazar-shual is listed as one of the cities within the territory of the tribe of Judah: Hazar-shual, Beersheba, Biziothiah. This shows that Hazar-shual was a known city within the boundaries of Judah.

In Nehemiah 11:27, Hazar-shual is mentioned again as part of the list of cities inhabited by the people of Judah after the exile: in Hazar-shual, in Beersheba and its villages.

Additionally, in 1 Chronicles 4:28, Hazar-shual is referenced in a genealogy: They lived in Beersheba, Moladah, Hazar Shual.

From these references, we can gather that Hazar-shual was a village or city located in the region of Judah, possibly known for its association with jackals or wild dogs. The Bible does not provide extensive details about the significance or events related to Hazar-shual, but its inclusion in the lists of cities indicates its existence and importance within the tribal territories.

As biblicals, we affirm the historical accuracy and reliability of the biblical accounts, including the mention of places like Hazar-shual. While we may not have additional information beyond what is recorded in the Bible, we trust in the inspired Word of God to provide us with essential truths and historical contexts for our faith and understanding of the ancient world.
