Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Abana and Pharpar. or, Amana. This river is evidently the Barrade, or Barada, as the Arabic renders, the Chrysorrhoas of the Greeks, which taking its rise in Antilibanu, runs eastward towards Damascus, where it is divided into three streams, one of which passes through the city, and the other two through the gardens; which reuniting at the east of the city, forms a lake about five or six leagues to the south-east, called Behairat el Marj, or, Lake of the Meadow. Pharpar was probably one of the branches.
