Luke 4:26 (King James Version)
But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.
- 1 Kings 17:9-24
- Obadiah 1:20
- Sarepta, a city of Phoenicia, on the coast of the Mediterranean, is called Zarphand by the Arabian geographer Sherif Ibn Idris, who places it twenty miles N. of Tyre, and ten S. of Sidon; but its real distance from Tyre is about fifteen miles, the whole distance from that city to Sidon being only twenty-five miles. Maundrell states that the place shown him for this city, called Sarphan, consisted of only a few houses, on the tops of the mountains, within about half a mile of the sea; between which there were ruins of considerable extent.
