Ha'mon-gog (Heb. Hamon'-Gog, הָמוֹן גּוֹג, multitude of Gog; fully with גֵּיא, valley, prefixed; Sept. τὸ Γαϊv τὸ πολυάνδριον τοῦ Γώλ,Vulg. Vallis

multitudinis Gog), the name prophetically ascribed to the valley in which the corpses of the slaughtered army of Gog are described as to be buried (Eze 39:11,15); represented as situated to the east of the Dead Sea, on the thoroughfare of commerce with Arabia (comp. the route of the Ishmaelites to whom Joseph was sold, Ge 17:25), probably the present Haj road between Damascus and Mecca, but scarcely referring to any particular spot. (See Havernick, Commentar, ad loc.;. Stuart's Comment. on the Apocalypse, 2, 367.) SEE GOG.
