Vocabulary of the Greek NT

We appear to nave the gen. plur. of this word in the generally accepted reading of John 18:1 πέραν τοῦ χειμάρρου τῶν Κέδρων, but it is probable that this is due to a popular misunderstanding of the real reading τοῦ Κεδρών, where Κεδρών is the indeclinable Hellenized form of a Semitic word קדרוֹן ";dark,"; and indicates that the stream was so called from the turbid character of its waters : see especially Lightfoot Biblical Essays, p. 172 ff., Moulton Gr. ii. §60 (12).
