Lebanon

Lebanon (Leb´uh-nuhn)

The name of a mountain range parallel to the eastern Mediterranean coast (not to be confused with the modern Republic of Lebanon). In antiquity Lebanon was populated by Canaanites and was the homeland of the Phoenicians. The Lebanon mountains were famous for their beautiful white peaks (Jer 18:14) and cedar forests (1Kgs 4:33; 2Kgs 14:9; Ps 92:12; Ps 104:16). King Solomon used cedars of Lebanon in the construction of the Temple in Jerusalem (1Kgs 5:6-10; 1Kgs 6:15-20) and in his palace (1Kgs 7:2-3).
