1 Samuel 10: When thou art departed from me to day, then thou shalt find two men by Rachel's sepulchre in the border of Benjamin at Zelzah; and they will say unto thee, The asses which thou wentest to seek are found: and, lo, thy father hath left the care of the asses, and sorroweth for you, saying, What shall I do for my son?

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Zelzah
ZELZAH . In 1 Samuel 10:2 tells Saul that he will find ‘two men by Rachel’s sepulchre in the border of Benjamin at Zelzah .’ No such place is known to us, and the reference is strange after the definite mention of Rachel’s sepulchre. The LXX [Note: Septuagint.] does not regard it as a proper name, and tr. [Note: translate or translation.] ‘leaping furiously’; and the Vulgate reads ‘in the south.’ Neither of these can be correct. Possibly the Greek of the LXX [Note: Septuagint.] is a transliteration of some Heb. word, which was not understood and was then transformed into something significant in Greek. The meaning remains uncertain.
