Place where the Israelites sacrificed their children. Based on a Hebrew word meaning “furnace” or “fireplace,” the word was altered by Hebrew scribes to mean “shameful thing.” It came to apply as well to the cemetery where the victims’ remains were buried and to the location in the Hinnom valley where the sacrifice occurred.
