A station of the Israelites in the desert (Num. xi. 35, xii. 16, xxxiii. 17; Deut. i. 1). It was at Hazeroth that Miriam, having slandered her brother Moses, was stricken with leprosy (Num. xii. 1-11). The geographical position of Hazeroth is indicated in Deut. i. 1—in the Arabah opposite the Red Sea. It is identified with the modern 'Ain al-Khaḍra, on the route from Mt. Sinai to 'Aḳaba.
