Gehenna \Ge*hen"na\ (g[-e]*h[e^]n"n[.a]), prop. n. [L. Gehenna,
Gr. Ge`enna, Heb. G[=e] Hinn[=o]m.] (Jewish Hist.)
The valley of Hinnom, near Jerusalem, where some of the
Israelites sacrificed their children to Moloch, which, on
this account, was afterward regarded as a place of
abomination, and made a receptacle for all the refuse of the
city, perpetual fires being kept up in order to prevent
pestilential effluvia. In the New Testament the name is
transferred, by an easy metaphor, to Hell.
The pleasant valley of Hinnom. Tophet thence
And black Gehenna called, the type of Hell. --Milton.
