Easton's Bible Dictionary


denotes the estuary of the Dead Sea at the mouth of the Jordan (Jos 15:5; 18:19), also the southern extremity of the same sea (15:2). The same Hebrew word is rendered "tongue" in Isa 11:15, where it is used with reference to the forked mouths of the Nile.

Bay in Zec 6:3, 7 denotes the colour of horses, but the original Hebrew means strong, and is here used rather to describe the horses as fleet or spirited.

And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled and BAY horses. (Zechariah 3:3)
