ZAREPHATH

Obadiah 1:20, a Phoenician seaport on the Mediterranean between Tyre and Zidon, usually subject to Tyre.

During a famine in Israel, the prophet Elijah resided here, with a widow whose cruse of oil and barrel of flour were supplied and whose child was restored to life by miracle. Her noble faith in God is worthy of everlasting remembrance; universal imitation, 1 Kings 17:9-24. The place was afterwards called by the Greeks Sarepta, Luke 4:26, and is now known as Sarafend, a large village on the hills adjoining the seacoast.
