Si'hon. (warrior). King of the Amorites, when Israel arrived on the borders of the Promised Land. Numbers 21:21. (B.C. 1451). Shortly before the time of Israel's arrival, he had dispossessed the Moabites of a splendid territory, driving them south of the natural bulwark of the Amen. Numbers 21:26-29. When the Israelite host appeared, he did not hesitate or temporize like Balak, but, at once, gathered his people together and attacked them. But the battle was his last. He and all his host were destroyed, and their district from Amen to Jabbok became, at once, the possession of the conqueror.
