Shihor of egypt

The black, turbid river (Joshua 13:3; Joshua 15:4; Joshua 15:47; SIHOR is the less correct form); 1 Chronicles 13:5. "Shihor which is before (i.e. E. of) Egypt." Not the Nile, which is called "the river" (haeor; Genesis 41:1; Genesis 41:3; Exodus 1:22), and flowed not before but through the middle of Egypt. The Rhinocorura is meant, now wady el Arish, the nachal or "river of Egypt," Canaan's southern boundary toward Egypt, (Numbers 34:5). In Isaiah 23:3; Jeremiah 2:18; Sihor means the "Nile".
