The scene of the death of the "troubler" Achan, with whom its name is associated ( Joshua 7:26 ). Osee foretells the time when this gloomy, ill-omened valley will be for an "opening of hope" to the returning exiles of Israel ( Hosea 2:15 ); another prophet pictures it, in the same glorious future, transformed into a "place for the herds to lie down in" ( Isaiah 65:10 ). It was on the north boundary of Juda, leading past Jericho to the Jordan ( Joshua 15:7 ).It is commonly identified with the modern Wady-el-Kelt and is usually written Akor .
