Merom, Waters of (See Also Jordan, Lake of Huleh)

A lake in the north of Palestine. The lake was drained in 1957 to provide fertile agricultural land. It was connected with a large morass on its north side, in which there was an abundance of tall papyrus. The streams forming the Jordan flowed into this morass, and thence into the Merom waters. The open water was about four and a half miles from north to south and three and a half miles at its widest. It lay seven feet above sea level. This was where Joshua defeated the confederate kings of the north. Joshua 11:5-9 . Identified with Baheiret el Huleh, 33 4' N, 35 37 E.
