(ab' uh nuh) or ABANAH (NASB) River in Damascus in Syria. In his anger Naaman wanted to wash here rather than in the dirty Jordan (2 Kings 5:12 ). Many Hebrew manuscripts, the Septuagint and Targums call the river the Amana. See Song of Song of Solomon 4:8 . Its modern name is Barada, and it travels swiftly from snow-capped Mount Hermon through Damascus to end in a marsh.
