Shazer was a temporary stopping point for Lehi and his family during their journey from Jerusalem to the Promised Land, as recorded in the Book of Mormon. After a four-day journey traveling nearly south-southeast from the Valley of Lemuel, the group established a camp at Shazer (1 Nephi 16:13). This location served as a base camp from which the family could hunt for food. The scripture specifically mentions that they took their bows and arrows into the wilderness from Shazer to obtain food for their families before returning to the camp (1 Nephi 16:14). The narrative indicates that Shazer was situated in a fertile region close to the borders near the Red Sea, making it an advantageous spot for hunting and gathering during their sojourn. After replenishing their provisions, the party continued their journey in the wilderness along the same south-southeast direction, traversing the more fertile parts of the region. Shazer is mentioned only once in the Book of Mormon, and provides limited detail beyond its function as a location of temporary respite and resupply for Lehi’s family during their exodus.
