People's Dictionary of the Bible [1]

Zereda ( Zĕr'E-Dah ), Cooling. A place in Ephraim, in the plain of Jordan.  1 Kings 11:26. Possibly it is the same as Zaretan,  Joshua 3:16; Zererath,  Judges 7:22, R. V., "Zererah;" Zartanah,  1 Kings 4:12, R. V., "Zarethan;" Zeredathah,  2 Chronicles 4:17, R. V., "Zeredah;" and Zarthan,  1 Kings 7:46. There seems to be much confusion about these names, but the Pal. Memoirs suggest as the site of Zereda, Surdah, 2½ miles northwest of Beitin (Bethel).

Fausset's Bible Dictionary [2]

Hebrew the Zeredah. Jeroboam's native place ( 1 Kings 11:26). The Septuagint has: Sareira , and the Alexandrinus manuscript has: Sarida , and make it a strong town in Mount Ephraim which Jeroboam fortified for Solomon, and where on his return from Egypt he assembled the tribe of Ephraim. If this Septuagint view be rejected, and if it be identified with Zarthan then it lay in that part of Ephraim which was in the Jordan valley.

Smith's Bible Dictionary [3]

Zer'eda. (The Fortress). The native place of Jeroboam.  1 Kings 11:26. Zereda or Zeredah has been supposed to be identical with Zeredathah and Zarthan or Zartanah; but the last two were in the valley of the Jordan, while Zeredah was, according to the repeated statement of the Septuagint (LXX) on Mount Ephraim.

(Heb. with the art. hats-Tseredah', הִצְּרֵדָה , The Fortress [F Ü rst] or The Cool [Gesen.] Sept. Σαριδά v.r. Σαριρά ; Vulg. Sareda ) , a town in Mount Ephraim, the birthplace of Jeroboam the son of Nebat ( 1 Kings 11:26). In an addition made by the Sept; to ch. 12 Sarira (as this place is called by some MSS.) is said to have been built by Jeroboam for Solomon, and it is stated that to it Jeroboam returned when he came out of Egypt. The same passage further substitutes it for Tirzah. It seems to have been located as a fastness on some strong position. On this account, as well as because of its connection with Mount Ephraim, it cannot be (as many think) the same with Zeredatha, Zerrath, or Zarthan, which lay in the Jordan valley. Lieut. Conder (Tent Work in Palest. 2, 340) identities it with Surdah, a village little more than a mile south of Jufna (Tristram, Bible Places, p. 110).
