JORDAN RIVER

JORDAN RIVER

David and all the troops with him promptly crossed the Yarden, and by daybreak not one was left who had not crossed the Yarden

II Samuel 17:22 (The Israel Bible™)

וַיָּקָם דָּוִד וְכָל־הָעָם אֲשֶׁר אִתּוֹ וַיַּעַבְרוּ אֶת־הַיַּרְדֵּן עַד־אוֹר הַבֹּקֶר עַד־אַחַד לֹא נֶעְדָּר אֲשֶׁר לֹא־עָבַר אֶת־הַיַּרְדֵּן

Hear the verse in Hebrew

va-ya-KOM da-VID v’-khol ha-AM a-SHER i-TO va-ya-av-RU et ha-yar-DAYN ad OR ha-BO-ker ad a-KHAD LO ne-DAR a-SHER lo a-VAR et ha-yar-DAYN

The Jordan River

There is an incredible connection between Biblical names and the Hebrew language! The Hebrew name for the Jordan River, pictured above, is Yarden (ירדן), a word formed from the Hebrew words yorayd Dan (יורד דן), which means "descends [from] Dan." The territory of Dan is the northernmost part of Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel). The Jordan River flows the length of the country from north to south, starting near Dan at the foot of Mount Hermon and ending at the Dead Sea.

22  David and all the troops with him promptly crossed the Yarden, and by daybreak not one was left who had not crossed the Yarden.

va-ya-KOM da-VID v’-khol ha-AM a-SHER i-TO va-ya-av-RU et ha-yar-DAYN ad OR ha-BO-ker ad a-KHAD LO ne-DAR a-SHER lo a-VAR et ha-yar-DAYN

כב  וַיָּקָםדָּוִדוְכָל־הָעָם אֲשֶׁר אִתּוֹ וַיַּעַבְרוּ אֶת־הַיַּרְדֵּן עַד־אוֹר הַבֹּקֶר עַד־אַחַד לֹא נֶעְדָּר אֲשֶׁר לֹא־עָבַר אֶת־הַיַּרְדֵּן׃

The Jordan River. By Boruch Len.

The Hebrew name for the Jordan river is Yarden (ירדן), a word formed from the Hebrew words yorayd Dan (יורד דן), which means ‘descends [from] Dan.’ The territory of Dan is the northernmost part of Eretz Yisrael. The Jordan river flows the length of the country from north to south, starting near Dan at the foot of Mount Hermon, and ending at the Dead Sea. In its 250 km course, the Yarden descends from a height of over 2800 km above sea level to more than 350 km below, making it the river with the lowest elevation in the world.
