In Hebrew Be-ra means "in evil" and Birsha
"in wickedness." The former was the king of Sodom, the latter the king of

Genesis 14:2 - that they made war with
Bera king of Sodom, and with
Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah,
and Shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela -- the same is Zoar.
