ABANAH . The river of Damascus mentioned by Naaman, 2 Kings 5:12 . It is identified with the Barada , a river rising on the eastern slope of the Anti-Lebanon, which runs first southward, then westward, through the Wady Barada and the plain of Damascus. About 18 miles from Damascus, after dividing fan-wise into a number of branches, it flows into the Meadow Lakes.
