Now Methuselah dwelt in the lands of Shittim beside his wife, Japhia, and he wept
sorely for the passing away of Zion, for when it was told him how God had taken Zion
unto his bosom, he cried aloud in the anguish of his soul.
Summary: In the days of Methuselah I, the land of Shittim was the area surrounding
the Sea of Galilee. It was there that Methuselah and a large remnant of the Adaam
settled after the ascension of Zion and the collapse of the Sumerian Empire (AZC
— Methuselah I).
