Mount Hermon was in the far north of Palestine, at the southern end of the Lebanon Range. It was known to the Lebanese as Mt Sirion. The ancient Amorites called it Mt Senir (Deuteronomy 3:9; see also LEBANON). It was the highest mountain of the region, and water from its snow-covered heights was a major source of the Jordan River (Jeremiah 18:14). It was included in the territory God promised to Israel, but Israel’s control never extended beyond its southern foothills (Joshua 11:16-17).
