Sirion

Additional Links

sir´i - on ( שׂריון , siryōn ; Σανιώρ , Saniṓr ): The name of Mt. Hermon among the Phoenicians ( Deuteronomy 3:9 ). It is given as "Shirion" in Psalm 29:6 (Hebrew "breastplate" or "body armor"). Here it is named with Lebanon. Sirion therefore probably did not denote a particular part of the Hermon Range, as did Senir, but may have been suggested by the conformation of the range itself, as seen from the heights above the Phoenician coast.
