One place understood helps us understand all places better.

Zebulon will reside
by the seashore,
by the seashore
where the
ships lie.

is that beautiful shore
of quiet waves,
white waves
washing away.

North of Mt. Carmel
Jezreel stretches,
stretches southeast
from the sea.

Faraway Megiddo guards
the Way but nowhere
will Zebulon be
nearer than Sarid,
which is nowhere
near the sea.

Rejoice, O Zebulon
Peaceful by the sea
while southeast lies
the battle,
the battle of eternity.
