vale, valley

A depression in the earth’s surface. The land of Palestine features a wide variety of valleys, ravines, and gorges due to the presence of the Carmel and Central mountain ranges. Valleys served as the location for military battles (Gen 14:8), cities (Gen 19:29), crops (1Sam 6:13), springs (1Kgs 18:5), and grazing lands (1Chr 27:29).
