(1.) Heb. bik'ah, a "cleft" of the mountains (Deu 8:7; 11:11; Psa 104:8; Isa 41:18); also a low plain bounded by mountains, as the plain of Lebanon at the foot of Hermon around the sources of the Jordan (Jos 11:17; 12:7), and the valley of Megiddo (2Ch 35:22).

(2.) 'Emek, "deep;" "a long, low plain" (Job 39:10,21; Psa 65:13; Sgs 2:1), such as the plain of Esdraelon; the "valley of giants" (Jos 15:8), usually translated "valley of Rephaim" (2Sa 5:18); of Elah (1Sa 17:2), of Berachah (2Ch 20:26); the king's "dale" (Gen 14:17); of Jehoshaphat (Joe 3:2,12), of Achor (Jos 7:24; Isa 65:10), Succoth (Psa 60:6), Ajalon (Jos 10:12), Jezreel (Hsa 1:5).

(3.) Ge, "a bursting," a "flowing together," a narrow glen or ravine, such as the valley of the children of Hinnom (2Ki 23:10); of Eshcol (Deu 1:24); of Sorek (Jdg 16:4), etc.

The "valley of vision" (Isa 22:1) is usually regarded as denoting Jerusalem, which "may be so called," says Barnes (Com. on Isa.), "either (1) because there were several valleys within the city and adjacent to it, as the vale between Mount Zion and Moriah, the vale between Mount Moriah and Mount Ophel, between these and Mount Bezetha, and the valley of Jehoshaphat, the valley of the brook Kidron, etc., without the walls of the city; or (2) more probably it was called the valley in reference to its being compassed with hills rising to a considerable elevation above the city" (Psa 125:2; also Jer 21:13, where Jerusalem is called a "valley").

(4.) Heb. nahal, a wady or water-course (Gen 26:19; Sgs 6:11).
