Holman Bible Dictionary
(huh zee' rahth) Place name meaning, “villages” or “encampments.” Wilderness station on Israel's journey from Egypt (Numbers 11:35 ). There Aaron and Miriam challenged Moses' sole authority, using his Cushite wife as an excuse (Numbers 12:1 ). God punished Miriam with a hated skin disease. Deuteronomy 1:1 uses Hazeroth as one focal point to locate Moses' speech to Israel. Some geographers would locate it at moder ain Khadra, south of Ezion-geber. Some Bible students try to locate all the sites in Deuteronomy 1:1 near Moab. If they are right, the Hazeroth mentioned there is different from the wilderness station.
Easton's Bible Dictionary
Fenced enclosures consisting of "a low wall of stones in which thick bundles of thorny acacia are inserted, the tangled branches and long needle-like spikes forming a perfectly impenetrable hedge around the encampment" of tents and cattle which they sheltered. Such like enclosures abound in the wilderness of Paran, which the Israelites entered after leaving Sinai (Numbers 11:35 ; 12:16 ; 33:17,18 ). This third encampment of the Israelites has been identified with the modern 'Ain el-Hudhera, some 40 miles north-east of Sinai. Here Miriam (q.v.), being displeased that Moses had married a Cushite wife (Numbers 12:1 ), induced Aaron to join with her in rebelling against Moses. God vindicated the authority of his "servant Moses," and Miriam was smitten with leprosy. Moses interceded for her, and she was healed (Numbers 12:4-16 ). From this encampment the Israelites marched northward across the plateau of et-Tih, and at length reached KADESH.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
HAZEROTH . A camping-ground of Israel, the second station northward in the journey from Sinai ( Numbers 11:35 ; Numbers 12:16 ; Numbers 33:17 f., and probably Deuteronomy 1:1 ). It is usually identified with the beautiful wady of ’Ain el-Khadrah , about 30 mlies north-east of Jebel Musa.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary
The stage after Kibroth Hattaavah in Israel's wanderings (Numbers 11:35; Numbers 12:16; Numbers 33:17; Deuteronomy 1:1). Now El Ain, famed for its spring, on Israel's probable route (which Ain el Hudherah is not) by the wady es Zulukah. But Clark identifies Hazeroth with Bir eth Themed, many miles further on the march northwards. Several valleys converge round El Ain, which with other springs make this region the oasis of the E. of the peninsula.

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
The place where Israel, in their journey through the wilderness, encamped. (Numbers 11:35) This name, like some others, Hazerim, Hazar-addar, (Numbers 34:4) Hazah-gadda, (Joshua 15:27) mean one and the same thing. Hazer signifies the entry to the place, or village. Thus Hazezom-Tamar, the entrance to the city of palm trees, the same as Engedi. (See Genesis 14:7)
