A river which flows from northern Samaria into the Mediterranean. Normally sluggish, it overflows during the rains and creates a surrounding area of swamp, which caused disaster to Sisera's chariots (Judg. 5:21), as celebrated in Ps. 83:9. It was also the scene of Elijah's massacre of the prophets of Baal after the contest on Mount Carmel [[➝ Carmel, Mount]] (1 Kgs. 18:40).
