Sa'rid (Heb. Surid' שָׂרַיד. survivor, as often [Fürst, place of refuge]; Sept. Σαρίδ v.r. Σαρδίδ, Σεδδούχ, etc.), the point of departure on the southern boundary of Zebulon, lying west of Chisloth Tabor, and south of Daberath and Japhia (Jos 19:10,12). It was unknown to Eusebius and Jerome (Onomast. s.v. "Sarith"), and the name has not been discovered by modern research. Knobel, holding the word to mean an "incision," thinks it designates merely the southern opening of the deep and narrow wady which comes down from the basin of Nazareth (q.v.), between two steep mountains (Seetzen, 2, 151 sq.; Robinson, 3, 183). Keil more definitely suggests that it may be found in one of the two heaps of ruins on the south side of the modern "Mount of Precipitation," namely those near el-Mezrach, on the northwest. SEE TRIBE; SEE ZEBULON.
