BERACHAH ("blessing"; A. V., Beracah):

1. A Benjamite who came to David and joined his forces at Ziklag (I Chron. xii. 3). 2. A valley where Jehoshaphat and his men assembled after having despoiled the Ammonites and Moabites (II Chron. xx. 26). It is identical with the modern Berekut, west of Tekoa (Buhl, "Geographie des Alten Palästina," p. 97).
