OccurrencesDeuteronomy 3:9 (which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion, and the Amorites call it Senir;)
Jeremiah 18:14 Shall the snow of Lebanon fail from the rock of the field? or shall the cold waters that flow down from afar be dried up?
sir'-i-on (siryon; Sanior): 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.
SIR'ION, a Sidonian name for Mt. Hermon, Deut, 3:9.
