Easton's Bible Dictionary
( 1 Samuel 27:10 ; RSV, "raid") An inroad, an incursion.
This word is never used in Scripture in the sense of a way or path.
Hitchcock's Dictionary of Bible Names
Smith's Bible Dictionary
This word occurs but once in the Authorized Version of
the Bible, viz. in ( 1 Samuel 27:10 ) where it is used in the sense of "raid"
or "inroad." Where a travelled road is meant "path" or "way" is used, since the
eastern roads are more like our paths.
