Holman Bible Dictionary - Hezron
(hehz' rahn) Personal and place name meaning, “camping place” or “reeds.” 1. Son of Reuben, grandson of Jacob (Genesis 46:9 ), and original clan ancestor of Hezronites (Numbers 26:6 ). 2 . Grandson of Judah, great grandson of Jacob (Genesis 46:12 ), original clan ancestor of Hezronites (Numbers 26:21 ) through whom David was born (Ruth 4:19 ). He was father of Caleb (1 Chronicles 2:18 ) and of Segub (1 Chronicles 2:21 ). The Hebrew text of 1 Chronicles 2:24 can be interpreted and translated in different ways. KJV makes Hezron the father of Ashur (compare NAS, NRSV, NIV). Some Bible students follow the lead of the earliest translations, changing the Hebrew text somewhat so that Caleb is the father of Ashur, Ephratah being Caleb's wife (compare REB, TEV, RSV). Hezron's first son was Jerahmeel, original ancestor of the Jerahmeelites ( 1 Chronicles 2:25 ).

Holman Bible Dictionary - Kerioth-Hezron
(kee' rih ahth-hehz rahn) Place name representing one or perhaps two cities. KJV takes the Hebrew to refer to two cities in Joshua 15:25 —thus, Kerioth and Hezron. Some scholars still follow this. If this is a reference to two cities, Kerioth would be identified with the Kerioth of Jeremiah 48:24 ; Amos 2:2 See Kerioth . Hezron would be identified with the city of Hazor mentioned in Joshua 15:23 , a city in the south of Judah near Kadesh-barnea (Joshua 15:3 ). See Hazor . Many scholars, however, take Kerioth-Hezron to refer to a village of Judah in the Negev district of Beersheba and identify it with modern khirbet el-Qaryatein, about four miles south of Maon.
