Hermon

Hermon (Huhr´muhn; Heb., “sacred” or “forbidden”)

The three-peaked summit at the southern end of the Anti-Lebanon range. According to (Deut 3:9), “the Sidonians call Hermon Sirion, while the Amorites call it Senir,” and these three names are sometimes used together in the OT (Deut 4:48; 1Chr 5:23). The Hebrew text of (Ps 42:6) speaks literally of the “Hermons,” which may refer to the three peaks. Hermon formed the northernmost limit of Joshua’s conquests (Josh 11:3; Josh 11:17; Josh 12:1; Josh 12:5; Josh 13:5; Josh 13:11).
