lord of Bezek, a Canaanite king who, having subdued seventy of
the chiefs that were around him, made an attack against the
armies of Judah and Simeon, but was defeated and brought as a
captive to Jerusalem, where his thumbs and great toes were cut
off. He confessed that God had requited him for his like cruelty
to the seventy kings whom he had subdued (Judg. 1:4-7; compare 1
Sam. 15:33).
