(Hermon is called Sirion by the Sidonians; the Amorites call it Senir.)
2 Samuel 17:22
So David and all the people with him set out and crossed the Jordan. By daybreak, no one was left who had not crossed the Jordan.
From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me.
