‘Shephelah’ is a Hebrew word used to describe the low hill country between the coastal plain and the central mountains of Palestine. It was a fertile region, suitable for growing fruit trees and raising sheep and cattle (Joshua 10:40; Judges 1:9; 2 Chronicles 9:27; 2 Chronicles 26:10; Jeremiah 17:26; Jeremiah 32:44). For details see PALESTINE, sub-heading ‘Shephelah’.
