Shammai’s son was Maon, who was the father of Beth-Zur.
Maon, Carmel, Ziph, Juttah,
Saul and his men went to look for him. 1 But David was informed and went down to the rock and stayed in the desert of Maon. When Saul heard about it, he pursued David in the desert of Maon.
So they left and went to Ziph ahead of Saul. Now David and his men were in the desert of Maon, in the Arabah to the south of Jeshimon.
There was a man in Maon whose business was in Carmel. This man was very wealthy; 1 he owned three thousand sheep and a thousand goats. At that time he was shearing his sheep in Carmel.
Samuel died, and all Israel assembled and mourned him. They buried him at his home in Ramah. Then David left and went down to the desert of Paran. 1
