SHARON, PLAIN OF

(sshar' uhn) Geographical name meaning, “flat land” or “wetlands.” 1. A coastal plain which runs from near modern Tel Aviv to just south of Mount Carmel (about 50 miles). The area had abundant marshes, forests, and sand dunes, but few settlements during biblical days. Because of its fertility and low risk of flooding, the plain was used more by migrant herdsmen than settled farmers. Isaiah 35:2 parallels Sharon with Lebanon, which was known for its trees. Isaiah 65:10 speaks of the area as an excellent pasture for flocks, symbolic of the peace that God would one day grant to His people. See Palestine.

2. Area of uncertain location east of the Jordan inhabited by the tribe of Gad (1 Chronicles 5:16) and mentioned by King Mesha of Moab. See Mesha.
