Hezron (Hebrew: חֶצְרוֹן, Modern: H̱etsron, Tiberian: Ḥeṣrôn) is a name which occurs several times in the Hebrew Bible.

It may refer to:

  • A plain in the south of Judah, south of Kadesh-barnea. (Joshua 15:3)
  • The grandfather of Amminadab and great-grandfather to Nahshon. Nahshon was Elisheba's brother and brother-in-law of Aaron. (Exodus 6:23)
  • A man appointed by Moses, as ordered by God, to be Prince over the tribe of Judah. He was the son of Perez, the son of Judah (not Hezron of the tribe of Reuben (Gen 46:12)).
  • A tribal leader when Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt. He died in the wilderness.
