Hebrew: מַזָּרָה —transliteration: mazzaroth —meaning is unknown, perhaps a constellation or the zodiac
This ancient word is found only Job 38:32, and may refer to a constellation of stars (Pleiades, Orion, etc.) or “the twelve signs” (of the zodiac), as in some Bible margin notes (compare 2 Kings 23:5).
