    Definitions for Genesis 14:10

    Vale - Valley.

    Clarke's Commentary on Genesis 14:10

    Slime-pits - Places where asphaltus or bitumen sprang out of the ground; this substance abounded in that country.

    Fell there - It either signifies they were defeated on this spot, and many of them slain, or that multitudes of them had perished in the bitumen-pits which abounded there; that the place was full of pits we learn from the Hebrew, which reads here בארת בארת beeroth beeroth, pits, pits, i.e., multitudes of pits. A bad place to maintain a fight on, or to be obliged to run through in order to escape.
