Achor

Additional Links

Joshua 7:24 (c) This valley represents a place of sorrow and trouble in human lives. As Achan was stoned there, and his sin put away, so in our lives times of trouble and sorrow may be called "the place of Achor." There GOD's remedy is to be applied to the difficulty.

Hosea 2:15 (c) The valley in this passage is described as a door of hope. When sin is judged and put away, then hope for GOD's blessing is revived, and joy replaces sorrow.
