CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Fled to Beth-shittah - This is no where else mentioned in Scripture.
Zererath - This and Tabbath are nowhere else to be found.
Abel-meholah - This was the birth-place of the prophet Elisha, 1 Kings 19:16. It was beyond Jordan, in the tribe of Manasseh, 1 Kings 4:12. The Zartanah, mentioned in this last quoted verse, was probably the same as Zererath. Its situation corresponds well with Abel-meholah.
