(zar' aw fath) Place name possibly meaning, “smelting, refining.” A town on the Mediterranean seacoast just south of Sidon. At the God's command Elijah fled there after prophesying a drought in Israel (1 Kings 17:2-9 ). While in Zarepath, he was hosted by a widow and her son. Although the drought affected the widow's income, too, her supply of meal and oil were miraculously sustained (1 Kings 17:12-16 ). Elijah also restored her son to life and health (1 Kings 17:17-23 ).
