(Hebrew Ketsits', קְצַיוֹ , abrupt; only with עֵמֶק, e'meki, valley, prefixed; Septuag. both Ἀμεκκασίς , Vulg. Vallis Casis), or rather Enmek-Keziz (Vale of Keziz), a city of the tribe of Benjamin, mentioned between Beth - hoglah and Beth-arabah (Joshua 18:21), and therefore probably situated in a steep ravine of the same name leading to the valley of the Jordan. (See BETHBASI). M. De Saulcy found a small valley by the name of Kaaziz about an hour and a half distant from Bethany, in the direction of Jericho (Narrative, ii, 17),which he conjectures (p. 26) was the ancient Valley of Keziz. So also Van de Velde (Memoir, p. 328) calls it Wady el Kaziz.
