Definition of river:
- In the sense in which we employ the word viz. for a perennial stream of considerable size, a river is a much rarer object in the East than in the West. With the exception of the Jordan and the Litany, the streams of the holy land are either entirely dried up in the summer months converted into hot lanes of glaring stones, or else reduced to very small streamlets, deeply sunk in a narrow bed, and concealed from view by a dense growth of shrubs. The perennial river is called nahar by the Hebrews. With the definite article, " the river," it signifies invariably the Euphrates. ( Genesis 31:21 ; Exodus 23:31 ; Numbers 24:6 ; 2 Samuel 10:16 ) etc. It is never applied to the fleeting fugitive torrents of Palestine. The term for these is nachal , for which our translators have used promiscuously, and sometimes almost alternately, " valley" " brook" and " river." No one of these words expresses the thing intended; but the term " brook" is peculiarly unhappy. Many of the wadys of Palestine are deep, abrupt chasms or rents in the solid rock of-the hills, and have a savage, gloomy aspect, far removed from that of an English brook. Unfortunately our language does not contain any single word which has both the meanings of the Hebrew nachal and its Arabic equivalent wady which can be used at once for a dry valley and for the stream which occasionally flows through it.
- Heb. ' aphik, properly the channel or ravine that holds water ( 2 Samuel 22:16 ), translated " brook," " river," " stream," but not necessarily a perennial stream ( Ezekiel 6:3 ; 31:12 ; 32:6 ; 34:13 ).
- Heb. nahal, in winter a " torrent," in summer a " wady" or valley ( Genesis 32:23 ; Deuteronomy 2:24 ; 3:16 ; Isaiah 30:28 ; Lamentations 2:18 ; Ezekiel 47:9 ). These winter torrents sometimes come down with great suddenness and with desolating force. A distinguished traveller thus describes his experience in this matter:, " I was encamped in Wady Feiran, near the base of Jebel Serbal, when a tremendous thunderstorm burst upon us. After little more than an hour's rain, the water rose so rapidly in the previously dry wady that I had to run for my life, and with great difficulty succeeded in saving my tent and goods; my boots, which I had not time to pick up, were washed away. In less than two hours a dry desert wady upwards of 300 yards broad was turned into a foaming torrent from 8 to 10 feet deep, roaring and tearing down and bearing everything upon it, tangled masses of tamarisks, hundreds of beautiful palmtrees, scores of sheep and goats, camels and donkeys, and even men, women, and children, for a whole encampment of Arabs was washed away a few miles above me. The storm commenced at five in the evening; at half-past nine the waters were rapidly subsiding, and it was evident that the flood had spent its force." ( Compare Matthew 7:27 ; Luke 6:49 .)
- Nahar, a " river" continuous and full, a perennial stream, as the Jordan, the Euphrates ( Genesis 2:10 ; 15:18 ; Deuteronomy 1:7 ; Psalms 66:6 ; Ezekiel 10:15 ).
- Tel'alah, a conduit, or water-course ( 1 Kings 18:32 ; 2 Kings 18:17 ; 20:20 ; Job 38:25 ; Ezekiel 31:4 ).
- Peleg, properly " waters divided", i.e., streams divided, throughout the land ( Psalms 1:3 ); " the rivers [ i.e., ' divisions'] of waters" ( Job 20:17 ; 29:6 ; Proverbs 5:16 ).
- Yubhal, " a river" ( Jeremiah 17:8 ), a full flowing stream.
- ' Ubhal, " a river" ( Daniel 8:2 ). These dictionary topics are fromM.G. Easton M.A., D.D., Illustrated Bible Dictionary, Third Edition,published by Thomas Nelson, 1897.
