A valley in which Delilah resided, not far from Zorah, and Eshtaol, Judges 16:4 . In winter and spring it was the channel of a brook, flowing northwest from Judah, by the region of Dan and the Philistines, into the Mediterranean. Jerome mentions a village of Sorek in that vicinity. The same Hebrew word, translated "choice" and "noble" in Genesis 49:11 ; Isaiah 5:2 ; Jeremiah 2:21 , its the name of a vine bearing small grapes, but very sweet and almost without seeds. This vine may have given the valley its name.
