denotes the estuary of the Dead Sea at the mouth of the Jordan ( Joshua 15:5 ; 18:19 ), also the southern extremity of the same sea ( 15:2 ). The same Hebrew word is rendered "tongue" in Isaiah 11:15 , where it is used with reference to the forked mouths of the Nile.

Bay in Zech 6:3,7denotes the colour of horses, but the original Hebrew means strong, and is here used rather to describe the horses as fleet or spirited.
