Shual The land of
Shu’al, The land of, a district named in 1 Sam. 13:17 only. It is pretty certain from the passage that it lay north of Michmash. If therefore it be identical with the “land of Shalim,” 1 Sam. 9:4—as is not impossible—we have the first and only clue yet obtained to Saul’s journey in quest of the asses. The name Shual has not yet been identified.
