LOWLAND

lo'-land (shephelah; compare Arabic sufalat, "the lowest part"): The western part of Palestine, including the maritime plain and the foothills. There has been an attempt to restrict the term to the foothills, at least as far as the more ancient documents are concerned, but there can be little doubt that the maritime plain should be included. the Revised Version (British and American) has "lowland" throughout for shephelah, while the King James Version has "low country" (2 Chronicles 26:10; 2 Chronicles 28:18), "low plains" (1 Chronicles 27:28 2 Chronicles 9:27), "plain" (Jeremiah 17:26 Obadiah 1:19 Zechariah 7:7), "vale" or "valley" (Deuteronomy 1:7 Joshua 9:1; Joshua 10:40).
