Hebrew - Sorek
SOREK

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.
