Kishon, River of, Kison

Resource Toolbox

A brook that rises in the mountains of Esdraelon, and runs in a north-westerly course to the Mediterranean, close to mount Carmel. It was the scene of the victory of Deborah and Barak over the army of Sisera. The river is represented as 'sweeping away' the enemy, which well describes the rushing torrent. When there is much water it is in places quite impassable. It was also at this brook that Elijah slew the prophets of Baal. Judges 4:7,13 ; Judges 5:21 ; 1 Kings 18:40 ; Psalm 83:9 . It is now called Nahr el Mukutta.
