tin ( בּדיל , bedhı̄l ): Tin is mentioned with brass, iron and lead in Numbers 31:22; Ezekiel 22:18 , Ezekiel 22:20 . Ezekiel mentions tin along with silver, iron and lead as being imported into Tyre from Tarshish (see METALS; BRONZE ). The tin must have been brought in the form of ore and smelted in Syria. The writer has some slag dug from a deposit near Beirut which yielded nearly pure tin. It was probably the site of an ancient smelter's shop.
