James Hastings Dictionary of the Bible: Abanah


Subjects in this Topic:

ABANAH.—The river of Damascus mentioned by Naaman, 2Ki_5:12. It is identified with the Barada, a river rising on the eastern slope of the Anti-Lebanon, which runs first southward, then westward, through the Wady Barada and the plain of Damascus. About 18 miles from Damascus, after dividing fan-wise into a number of branches, it flows into the Meadow Lakes.

R. A. S. Macalister.
