Shual, The land of, [E]

a district named in ( 1 Samuel 13:17 ) only. It is pretty certain from the passage that it lay north of Michmash. If therefore it be identical with the "land of Shalim" ( 1 Samuel 9:4 ) --as is not impossible --we have the first and only clue yet obtained to Sauls journey in quest of the asses. The name Shual has not yet been identified. [E] indicates this entry was also found in Easton's Bible Dictionary
