Eglath-Shelishiyah

Additional Links

EGLATH-SHELISHIYAH occurs in an ancient oracle against Moab, which is quoted in Isaiah 15:5 and Jeremiah 48:34 . In both these passages RV [Note: Revised Version.] takes the word to be a proper name, giving in margin the alternative tr. [Note: translate or translation.] ‘[as] an heifer of three years old,’ which is AV [Note: Authorized Version.] in Jeremiah 48:34 and AVm [Note: Authorized Version margin.] in Isaiah 15:5 . In the latter passage, AV [Note: Authorized Version.] text omits ‘[as].’ It is still somewhat uncertain whether the word is an appellative or a proper name, although the latter view has commended itself to the majority of modern scholars.
