Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
We meet with an account of numberless values and vales in the Scripture. There is the valley of Achor, for a door of hope. (Hosea 2:15) The valley of Baca, a place of Bochim, or weeping. (Judges 2:1) The valley of Eshcol, or grapes. (Numbers 32:9) In short they are too numerous to be all noticed in this little work. But by valley the scriptural and figurative sense is, this lower world. Hence Ezekiel's vision in the valley of the dry bones. (See Ezekiel 37:1-14) I would only beg to call the reader's attention to a beautiful instance in point, where Jesus, speaking of visiting his church, useth this figure, "I went down (said Christ) into the garden of nuts, to see the fruits of the valley; and to see whether the vine flourished, and the pomegranate budded." (Song of Song of Solomon 6:11) What an endearing representation this is of Jesus, coming down into time valley of our world, and taking notice of his own graces given by himself to his own people. Sweet thought to comfort every poor fearful believer
