Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary [1]

A city of Judah. ( Joshua 15:38) Perhaps the same that is spoken of by Samuel, where he set up, between Mizpeh and Shur, the Ebenezer. (See  1 Samuel 7:5-7) The name signifies a place of look-out, or enquiry.

Mizpeh and Tabor, in after-ages, were places which lay in the path from Samaria to Jerusalem; so that here the priests of the calves set spies, which Hosea the Prophet figuratively called nets, to catch the pure worshippers who ventured, in those dangerous times of idolatry, to go up to worship Jehovah at Jerusalem. (See  Hosea 5:1)
