Sharon:

(a plain) a district of the holy land occasionally referred to in the Bible (1 Chronicles 5:16; Isaiah 33:9). In Acts 9:35 called SARON. The name has on each occurrence with one exception only, 1 Chronicles 5:16 the definite article; it would therefore appear that "the Sharon" was some well‐defined region familiar to the Israelites. It is that broad, rich tract of land which lies between the mountains of the central part of the holy land and the Mediterranean-the northern continuation of the Shefelah. SEE [PALESTINA AND PALESTINE]. The Sharon of 2 Chronicles 5:16 to which allusion has already been made, is distinguished front the western plain by not having the article attached to its name, as the other invariably has. It is also apparent from the passage itself that it was some district on the east of the Jordan, in the neighborhood of Gilead and Bashan. The name has not been met with in that direction.
