The following is the results of your search for sitting.
Sitting: The attitude generally assumed in Palestine by those who were engaged
in any kind of work. "The carpenter saws, planes, and hews with his
hand-adze, sitting on the ground or upon the plank he is planning.
The washerwoman sits by the tub; and, in a word, no one stands when
it is possible to sit. Shopkeepers always sit, and Levi sitting at
the receipt of custom
(Matthew 9:9) is the exact way to state the case.",
Thomson, Land and Book.
