SARID (sā'rĭd, Heb. sārîdh, survivor). A village on the boundary of Zebulun (Josh.19.10, Josh.19.12), probably modern Tell Shadud, north of Megiddo.
SARID să’ rĭd
; LXX A Σαριδ
; Heb. textual variants probably produced forms such as Εσεδεκ
, and Σεδδουκ
; further evidence of VSS indicates Heb. original שָׂרִֽיד
). An important city of Zebulun of uncertain identification (Josh 19:10
). Most scholars, accepting “sadud” as the original Heb. form, locate it at Tell Shadūd (Tell Shaddua, NBD) on the northern edge of the Plain of Esdraelon
c. five m. SW of Nazareth.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)
A place on the southern border of Zebulun to the West of Chisloth-tabor (Jos 19:10,12). It is mentioned but not identified in Eusebius, Onomasticon. Probably we should read "Sadid," and in that case may with Conder locate it at Tell Shaddu, an artificial mound with some modern ruins and good springs, which stands on the plain, about 5 miles West of Iksal.
