Shihor libnath

Joshua 19:26. A boundary of Asher. "Shihor" is not confined to the Nile exclusively. Not the Belus or glass river (Ptiny H. N. 5:19), now nahr Naman, which flows into the Mediterranean below Acre or Accho, for this is too far N. It must be S. of Carmel where Asher was bounded by Manasseh (Joshua 17:10), S. of Dor. Keil conjectures the nahr Zerka, three hours S. of Dor, Pliny's "crocodile river"; its name "blue" may answer both to Shihor "black" and Libnath "white."
