Treasury of Scripture

And he arose and departed, and came to Samaria. And as he was at the shearing house in the way,









(12) And he arose . . . and came.--So the Syriac, rightly. The common Hebrew text has, "And he arose and came and departed."

And as he was at the shearing house in the way.--Rather, He was at Beth-eqed-haroim on the way. The Targum renders: "He was at the shepherds' meeting-house on the way." The place was probably a solitary building, which served as a rendezvous for the shepherds of the neighbourhood. (The root 'aqad means "to bind," or "knot together;" hence the common explanation of the name is "the shepherds' binding house," i.e., the place where they bound their sheep for the shearing. But the idea of binding is easily connected with that of meeting, gathering together: comp. our words band, knot.) The LXX. has: "He was at Baithakad (or Baithakath) of the shepherds." Eusebius mentions a place called Beithakad, fifteen Roman miles from Legio (Lejj-n), identical with the present Beitkad, six miles east of Jenin, in the plain of Esdraelon; but this seems too far off the route from Jezreel to Samaria, which passes Jenin.

Verses 12-14. - The massacre of the brethren of Ahaziah. Verse 12. - And he arose and departed, and came to Samaria; rather, went on his way to Samaria (ἐπορεύθη εἰς Σαμάρειαν, LXX.). Having arranged matters at Jezreel as his interests required, and secured the adhesion of the Samaritan "great men," Jehu now sot out for the capital. The narrative from this point to ver. 17 is of events that happened to him while he was upon his road. And as he was at the shearing-house in the way. Between Jezreel and Samaria was a station where the shepherds of the district were accustomed to shear their flocks. The custom gave name to the place, which became known as Beth-Eked (Βαιθακάθ, LXX.; Beth-Akad, Jerome), "the house of binding," from the practice of tying the sheep's four feet together before shearing them, The situation has not been identified.
