Weather (יוֹם, yom, day, as usually rendered; "fair weather, זָהָב, zahab, Job 37:22, lit. gold, i.e.; brightness;" εὐδία, Mt 16:2; "foul weather," χειμών, ver. 3, storm, as elsewhere) IN PALESTINE is, in consequence of the region, being greatly diversified by hills, valleys, and plains, quite various in different parts, being hot during the summer, especially along the seashore (comp. Josephus, War, 3, 9, 1); and in the Jordan gorge (ibid. 4:8, 3), and cooler on the mountain ridges, especially in winter, but, on the whole, more equable than in Northern and Occidental countries. The length of the day also varies less in different seasons than in higher latitudes, and thus tends to equalize the temperature. SEE CALENDAR; SEE PALESTINE; SEE SEASON.
