shēr´ing ( חּרעים עקר בּית , bēth ‛ēḳedh hā - rō‛ı̄m , "house of binding of the shepherds"; Codex Vaticanus Βαιθάκαθ , Baithákath (Codex Alexandrinus Βαιθάκαδ , Baithákad ) τῶν ποιμένων , tṓn poiménōn ): Here in the course of his extinction of the house of Ahab, Jehu met and destroyed 42 men, "the brethren of Ahaziah king of Judah" ( 2 Kings 10:12-14 ). Eusebius (in Onomasticon ) takes the phrase as a proper name, Bethacath, and locates the village 15 miles from Legio in the plain. This seems to point to identification with Beit Kād , about 3 miles East of Jenı̄n .
