Hill Country

Concise Bible Dictionary:

Any part of the range of hills that runs through Palestine from north to south, in distinction from the plains towards the Mediterranean or the Jordan; and in distinction from the Shephelah which is a region in Judah that runs between the hill country and the plain on the west, called the “lowlands.” See a section of the country in MAPS (Josh. 13:6; Luke 1:39,65).
