Baca (bâ'ca), weeping, lamentation. A valley in Palestine, probably sterile. Psalms 84:6 A. V.; but the R. V. translates it "weeping." The pilgrim-journeys to Jerusalem are here described. Those who so go up, "passing through the valley of weeping, make it a spring," i.e., the sterile land becomes to them a watered valley. The plural of this word is rendered "mulberry trees" in 2 Samuel 6:23; 1 Chronicles 14:14-15.
