Easton's Bible Dictionary


a place near Succoth, in the plain of the Jordan, "in the clay ground," near which Hiram cast the brazen utensils for the temple (1Ki 7:46); probably the same as Zartan. It is also called Zeredathah (2Ch 4:17). (See ZEREDA.)

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia


zar'-than (tsarethan): the King James Version in 1Ki 7:46 for ZARETHAN (which see).

Smith's Bible Dictionary


(1.) A place in the circle of Jordan, mentioned in connection with Succoth (1 Kings 7:46).

(2.) It is also named in the account of the passage of the Jordan by the Israelites (Joshua 3:16) where the authorized Version has Zaretan.

(3.) A place with the similar name of Zartanah (1 Kings 4:12).

(4.) Further, Zeredathah, named in 2 Chronicles 4:17 only in specifying the situation of the foundries for the brass‐work of Solomon's temple, is substituted for Zarthan; and this again is not impossibly identical with the Zererath of the story of Gideon (Judges 7:22). All these spots agree in proximity to the Jordan, but beyond this we are absolutely at fault as to their position.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
