a place near Succoth, in the plain of the Jordan, "in the clay ground," near which Hiram cast the brazen utensils for the temple (1 Kings 7:46); probably the same as Zartan. It is also called Zeredathah (2 Chr. 4:17). (See ZEREDA.)
He was the son of a widow named Zeruah, who lived at zarthan in the Jordan valley.
In the plain of Jordan did the king cast them, in the clay ground between Succoth and zarthan.
