BETH-SHITTAH, BETHSHITTAH bĕth shĭt’ ə (בֵּ֤ית הַשִּׁטָּה, house of acacia). The place to which the routed army of the Midianites fled before Gideon (Judg 7:22). The site is prob. to be identified with Shattah, about two and one-half m. E of modern ’En-Harod, in the direction of Zarethan (Tell es-Sa’idiyeh?) near the Jordan, eighteen m. W of Jerash. Zarethan was near Adam (Josh 3:16) on the Jordan, indicating that the men headed across the Jordan.
