Shihor-libnath


Shi’hor-lib’nath (black of whitness), named only in Josh. 19:26 as one of the landmarks of the boundary of Asher. (Probably the little stream called on the map of Pal. Ord. Survey Wady en Nebra, “which enters the Mediterranean a little south of Athlit.” The name would come from the turgid character of the stream contrasted with the white and glistening sands of its shore.—Ed.)
