Salt, Valley of: A place where it is said David smote the Syrians
(2 Samuel 8:13) This
valley (the' Arabah) is between Judah and Edom on the south of the
Dead Sea. Hence some interpreters would insert the words, "and he
smote Edom," after the words, "Syrians" in the above text. It is
conjectured that while David was leading his army against the
Ammonites and Syrians, the Edomites invaded the south of Judah, and
that David sent Joab or Abishai against them, who drove them back and
finally subdued Edom. (Comp. title to)
