Hauran

Additional Links

Hauran (haw'ran), caves, caverns. A country east of the Jordan; the northeastern boundary of Palestine, Ezekiel 47:16; Ezekiel 47:18, and the Auranitis of the Greeks, and now known as the Hauran. When the Israelites conquered the land, the whole of this region appears to have been subject to Og, the king of Bashan, Numbers 21:33-35; Deuteronomy 3:1-5, and a large portion of it was allotted to Manasseh. The ruins scattered over the region are very extensive and remarkable; those built in the caverns are regarded by Wetzstein as the most ancient, and possibly reaching back to the times of the Rephaim. Genesis 14:5; Genesis 15:20, and Deuteronomy 3:11.
