Of the hill Ziph. cap. 45.

ZIph is a mount with much shadowe, therein Dauid hidde himselfe when hée absented him from Saule: & is beside Charmela in mount Carmell. In the which mount Nabal Cormolites dwel∣led sometime, that came of the kinde of Calef, as Ier. sayth. And that mount hath many woodes, vushes, and trées without fruite, and manye laundes, and wilde beasts, as Roes and wilde Coates be in this mount. And this mount is full of deunes and of dry ditches and holes, and therefore it is a couenable place for bani∣shed men and théeues to hide them ther∣in. And is perillous to straungers that know not the waies therin: for they may lightly leese themselues.
