Zoar

Zoar (Zoh´ahr)

One of the five Cities of the Plain (along with Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim). The four eastern kings led by Chedorlaomer, king of Elam, defeated these five cities in the Valley of Siddim (Gen 14:1-12). God allowed Lot to flee from Sodom to Zoar before he destroyed Sodom and the other cities with fire and brimstone (Gen 19:18-23). Zoar is mentioned later in connection with the destruction of Moab (Isa 15:5; Jer 48:34).
