Bezek in the Bible
Bezek in the Old Testament
(2) Bezek was also the place where Saul marshaled his army before marching to the relief of Jabesh-gilead (1 Sam 11:8). Eusebius, Onomasticon speaks of two villages of this name 17 Roman miles from Shechem, on the way to Scythopolis. No doubt Heb: Khirbet Ibziq is intended. Here, or on the neighboring height, Heb: Ras Ibziq, a mountain 2,404 ft. above sea level, the army probably assembled.
