Coele-Syria

Additional Links

Coele-Syr'ia. (hollow Syria). The remarkable valley or hollow which intervenes between Libanus and Anti-Libanus, stretching a distance of nearly a hundred miles. The only mention of the region as a separate tract of country, which the Jewish Scriptures contain, is probably that in Amos 1:5, where "the inhabitants of the plain of Aven" are threatened in conjunction with those of Damascus. The word is given in the Authorized Version, as Celo-Syria.
