Halak: Smooth; bald, a hill at the southern extremity of Canaan
(Joshua 11:17) It
is referred to as if it were a landmark in that direction, being
prominent and conspicuous from a distance. It has by some been
identified with the modern Jebel el-Madura, on the south frontier of
Judah, between the south end of the Dead Sea and the Wady Gaian.
