Treasury of Scripture

And over the herds that fed in Sharon was Shitrai the Sharonite: and over the herds that were in the valleys was Shaphat the son of Adlai:

Sharon

1 Chronicles 5:16
And they dwelt in Gilead in Bashan, and in her towns, and in all the suburbs of Sharon, upon their borders.

Isaiah 65:10
And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for my people that have sought me.









(29) And over the herds that fed in Sharon.--Heb., the oxen that grazed in the Sharon. The Sharon (i.e., "the Level") was a fertile strip of pasture-land running along the coast of the Mediterranean, between Caesarea and Joppa. (See Song of Solomon 2:1; Isaiah 33:9.)

Shitrai.--Hebrew margin, Shirtai.

Over the herds that were in the valleys.--Apparently the valleys of the highlands of Judah. Another reading is "in valleys."

Verse 29. - Sharon (see 1 Chronicles 5:16, 21). It means with the article, which, with one exception, always accompanies it, "the level laud," and on the west of the Jordan exactly corresponds with the Mishor on the east, a word of identical signification with Sharon. The tract of pasture-land which it designated stretched from Carmel to Joppa (Stanley's 'Sinai and Palestine,' edit. 1866, pp. 485, 260, 264). The valleys here intended are not specified.
