Additional Links

SOREK, VALLEY OF (perh. = ‘valley of the soreq vine’ [cf. art. Vine]). The valley or wâdy in which Delilah lived ( Judges 16:4 ). Eusebius and Jerome connect the valley with Capharsorec , a village to the north of Eleutheropolis and near Saraa, that is, Zorah, the home of Samson’s father. Capharsorec is now Khurbet Surîk , to the north of Wâdy es-Surâr , which is identified with ‘the valley of Sorek,’ and not far from Sur’ah . See also Zorah.
