In Hebrew, the Dead Sea is ''{{Audio|He-Dead Sea.ogg|Yām ha-Melaḥ}}'', meaning "sea of [[salt]]" ([[Book of Genesis|Genesis]] 14:3). In prose sometimes the term ''{{transl|he|Yām ha-Māvet}}'' ({{lang|he|ים המוות}}, "sea of death") is used, due to the scarcity of aquatic life there.<ref>{{cite book|author1=David Bridger|author2=Samuel Wolk|title=The New Jewish Encyclopedia|url=http://books.google.com/books?id=hZqpCrG3qw0C&pg=PA109|accessdate=25 July 2011|date=September 1976|publisher=Behrman House, Inc|isbn=9780874411201|page=109|quote=It was named the “Dead Sea” because of the fact that no living thing can exist there, since the water is extremely salty and bitter.}}</ref> In [[Arabic language|Arabic]] the Dead Sea is called {{Audio|ArDeadSea.ogg|''al-Bahr al-Mayyit''}}<ref name="ReferenceA"/> ("the Dead Sea"), or less commonly ''{{transl|ar|baḥrᵘ lūṭᵃ}}'' ({{lang|ar|بحر لوط}}, "the Sea of [[Lot (Bible)|Lot]]").
