beth 'eqed . Between Jezreel and Samaria, where Jehu slew at the well or pit 42 of the royal family of Judah (2 Kings 10:12; 2 Kings 10:14). Literally, "the place where shepherds bound sheep when about to shear them," from 'aaqad "to bind." Gesenius translated "the meeting place of shepherds." In the Esdraelon or Jezreel plain, 15 Roman miles from Legio (Lejun): Eusebius, Onomasticon. The village Beit Kad, though exactly this distance, is not on the plain but S. of Mount Gilboa. Conder suggests 'Akadah as the site, on the western side of the great plain.
