Sharon and Achor

Isaiah 65:10.
10 And Sharon shall be a fold of flocks, and the valley of Achor a place for the herds to lie down in, for My people that have sought Me.

Sharon was a district south of Mount Carmel, along the Mediterranean Sea, extending from Joppa to Caesarea. In scripture, it is noted for its fertility and beauty ( Is. 33:9; 35:2; I Chron. 5:16; 27:29, Song of Solomon 2:1)

The Valley of Achor was the place near Jericho where Achan was put to death for disobedience and lying (Josh. 7:24; 15:7; Hos. 2:15). For such a place to become a place of comfort for the herds to rest is a significant change; note, however, that it is available only for His people that have sought (actively searched for) Him.
