Soco

Soco (Soh´koh; Heb., “thorny”)

1 A town in Judah between Adullam and Azekah (Josh 15:35). It was used later by Philistines (1Sam 17:1), fortified by King Rehoboam of Judah (2Chr 11:7), and then used again by the Philistines (2Chr 28:18). 2 A second town in Judah (Josh 15:48), probably modern Khirbet Shuweikeh, about ten miles southwest of Hebron. 3 A town in Solomon’s third district (1Kgs 4:10). It was probably modern Tell er-Ras, located about ten miles northwest of Samaria. 4 Possibly a descendant of Judah and a son of Heber (1Chr 4:18), but here too Soco could be a place-name, possibly the one in (Josh 15:48) above.
