בָּכָא an unused root, i.q. בָּכָה prop. to drop, to distil; hence, to weep, to shed tears. (Arab. بكأ to pour milk drop by drop.)

An allusion is made to its etymology, Psalms 84:7, עֹבְרֵי בְּעֵמֶק הַבָּכָא מַעְיָן יְשִׁיתוּהוּ “passing through the valley of lamentation, they (the sacred pilgrims) make it fountains.”

(2) pl. בְּכָאִים 2 Samuel 5:23, 24 2 Samuel 5:24; 1 Chronicles 14:14, 15 1 Chronicles 14:15, some tree, so called from its weeping, dropping, according to Celsius (Hierobot. i. 335-340), Arab. بَكَاءُ like the balsam-tree, whence white drops distil of a cold and pungent taste.
