Kishon (hî'shon), bending, curved, or in one place, Psalms 83:9, Kison (kî'son), the present Nahr Mukâtta, a river which drains the plain of Esdraelon, passes through the plain of Acre, and falls into the Mediterranean. Only the lower part of it is perennial, fed by some springs at the foot of Mount Carmel. The upper part, rising on Tabor and Little Hermon, is dry in the summer, but becomes a torrent in the winter, rushing along with great impetuosity and transforming parts of the plains it traverses into swamps. The total defeat of Sisera, Judges 4:7; Judges 5:21, and the executions of the idol-priests by Elijah, 1 Kings 18:40, took place on the shores of this river.
