The following is the results of your search for esdraelon.
Esdraelon: The Greek form of the Hebrew "Jezreel," the name of the great plain
(called by the natives Merj Ibn Amer; i.e., "the meadow of the son of
Amer") which stretches across Central Palestine from the Jordan to
the Mediterraanean, separating the mountain ranges of Carmel and
Samaria from those of Galilee, extending about 14 miles from north
to south, and 9 miles from east to west. It is drained by "that
ancient river" the Kishon, which flows westward to the Mediterranean.
From the foot of Mount Tabor it branches out into three valleys, that
on the north passing between Tabor and Little Hermon
(Judges 4:14) that
on the south between Mount Gilboa and En-gannim
(2 Kings 9:27) while the
central portion, the "valley of Jezreel" proper, runs into the Jordan
valley (which is about 1,000 feet lower than Esdraelon) by Bethshean.
Here Gideon gained his great victory over the Midianites
Here also Barak defeated Sisera, and Saul's army was defeated by the
Philistines, and king Josiah, while fighting in disguise against
Necho, king of Egypt, was slain
(2 Chronicles 35:20-27; 2 Kings 23:29) This plain
has been well called the "battle-field of Palestine." "It has been a
chosen place for encampment in every contest carried on in this
country, from the days of Nebuchadnezzar, king of the Assyrians, in
the history of whose wars with Arphaxad it is mentioned as the Great
Plain of Esdraelon, until the disastrous march of Napoleon Bonaparte
from Egypt into Syria. Jews, Gentiles, Saracens, Crusaders, Frenchmen,
Egyptians, Persians, Druses, Turks, and Arabs, warriors out of every
nation which is under heaven, have pitched their tents in the plain,
and have beheld the various banners of their nations wet with the dews
of Tabor and Hermon" (Dr. Clark).
