New International Version
As they pass through the Valley of Baka, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools.
King James Bible
Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.
Darby Bible Translation
Passing through the valley of Baca, they make it a well-spring; yea, the early rain covereth it with blessings.
World English Bible
Passing through the valley of Weeping, they make it a place of springs. Yes, the autumn rain covers it with blessings.
Young's Literal Translation
Those passing through a valley of weeping, A fountain do make it, Blessings also cover the director.
Psalm 84:6 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Passing through the valley of Baca make it a well - Instead of בכא bacha, a mulberry-tree, seven MSS. have בכה becheh, mourning. I believe Baca to be the same here as Bochim, Judges 2:1-6, called The Valley of Weeping. Though they pass through this barren and desert place, they would not fear evil, knowing that thou wouldst supply all their wants; and even in the sandy desert cause them to find pools of water, in consequence of which they shall advance with renewed strength, and shall meet with the God of Israel in Zion.
The rain also filleth the pools - The Hebrew may be translated differently, and has been differently understood by all the Versions. גם ברכות יעטה מורה gam berachoth yaateh moreh; "Yea, the instructor is covered or clothed with blessings." While the followers of God are passing through the wilderness of this world, God opens for them fountains in the wilderness, and springs in the dry places. They drink of the well-spring of salvation; they are not destitute of their pastors. God takes care to give his followers teachers after his own heart, that shall feed them with knowledge; and while they are watering the people they are watered themselves; for God loads them with his benefits, and the people cover them with their blessings.

Baca, etc. or, mulberry-trees, make him a well, etc: Baca is probably a large shrub, which the Arabs still call baca and this valley as Celsius observes, seems to be on embarrassed with such bushes and thorns, which could not be passed without labour and tears.

"The LORD GOD is a Sun and Shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: "No good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly." --PSALM LXXXIV. 11. How pleasant to the heart of a true child to hear his father well spoken of, and to rejoice that he is the child of such a father. We feel that we can never thank GOD sufficiently for our privileged lot, who have been blessed with true and loving Christian parents. But if this be the case with regard to the dim and at best imperfect earthly reflections, …

He turned the desert into pools of water and the parched ground into flowing springs;
In a very short time, will not Lebanon be turned into a fertile field and the fertile field seem like a forest?
Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the LORD your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.
