CHEZIB (PLACE) [Heb kĕzı̂b (כְּזִיב)]. A city in S Canaan where Shelah, one of Judah’s sons, was born of a Canaanite woman (Gen 38:5). The context of the biblical reference implies that the town was near Adullam (cf. Gen 38:1). The consensus is that the site is the same as ACHZIB [Heb ʾakzı̂b] in Judah
