Decision, Valley of
(עֵמֶק הֶחָרוּוֹ, E'mek, he-Charuts', vale of the sentence; Sept. ἡ κοιλὰς τῆς δίκης, Vulg. Vallis concisionis), a name poetically given to the Valley of JEHOSHAPHAT (See JEHOSHAPHAT) (q.v.), as being the ideal scene of the signal inflictions by Jehovah upon Zion's enemies at their restoration (Joel 3:14). In perversion of some such prediction, the Mohammedans still believe that the final judgment will take place on this spot, and have accordingly left a stone in the city wall overhanging the valley, projecting as a seat for their prophet in the capacity of judge.
