גַּיְא Strong’s #1516 gai

So we abode in the valley over against Beth-peor.

Deuteronomy 3:2

The parent root of this word is gey (Strongs #1341), a word meaning “pride” in the sense of lifting oneself up to a high position. The word gai is “a valley,” a place surrounded by “high” walls. While a valley can be a place of beauty, it can also be a place of darkness and defenselessness.
