Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יַרְדֵּן in prose always with the art. הַיַּרְדֵּן (as an appellative, river, so called from descending, flowing down; like the Germ. Rhhn, Rhein, from the verb rinnen, compare ܝܰܪܕܐܳ a lake, sea), Jordan, Gr. ὁ Ἰορδάνης, the largest river of Palestine, rising at the foot of Antilibanus, and flowing into the Dead Sea, where it is lost, Genesis 13:10, 11 Genesis 13:11, 32:11 50:10. Arab. الاُرْدُنُّ el-Urdun, and also now it is called الشريعة esh-Sheriʾah, i.e. the ford (as having been of old crossed by the Israelites), [or rather, the watering place]. אֶרֶץ יַרְדֵּן the country near Jordan, Psalms 42:7.- Job 40:23, Jordan is put for any large river [?] (like Cicero, a Cicero, for a great orator); and this marks a writer as belonging to Palestine: [not necessarily, any more than such a use of the name Cicero would mark a writer to be a Roman].
