Jehoshaphat, Valley of: Mentioned in Scripture only in
(Joel 3:2,12) This is the name given in
modern times to the valley between Jerusalem and the Mount of Olives,
and the Kidron flows through it. Here Jehoshaphat overthrew the
confederated enemies of Israel
(Psalms 83:6-8) and in this valley also God
was to overthrow the Tyrians, Zidonians, etc.
(Joel 3:4,19) with an
utter overthrow. This has been fulfilled; but Joel speaks of the final
conflict, when God would destroy all Jerusalem's enemies, of whom Tyre
and Zidon, etc., were types. The "valley of Jehoshaphat" may therefore
be simply regarded as a general term for the theatre of God's final
judgments on the enemies of Israel. This valley has from ancient times
been used by the Jews as a burial-ground. It is all over paved with
flat stones as tombstones, bearing on them Hebrew inscriptions.
