Transcript ■ PHILISTIA. *53 hundred and seventy-one feet above the level of the sea, and commands a view of the opposite side of the valley, on which the Philistines were located and where they still owned the soil. From this central point of view at Sur'ah (Zorah) the history of Samson and subsequent events can be studied to advantage, for on looking across the valley on to the opposite hills to the southwest can be seen the remains of Timnath, now called Tibneh (see page 156), where Samson's betrothed resided among the Philistines ; below in the valley itself on the southern side are the remains of Beth-shemesh (see page 155), to which the milch kine brought the ark in a cart from Ekron ('Akir), and on looking down the Valley of Sorek the line can be traced up which the cart would have been drawn (see page 155). We find that Samson grew up to manhood in the country about Zorah and Eshtaol (Joshua xix. 41); that is SHRINE OF SHEIKH SAMAT AT SUR'AH (ZORAH), On the summit of the hill. Below is shown the upper part of the Wady es SiSr'ar (Valley of Sorek), which falls into the river called Nahr Rubin.
