Sihor

(correctly Shi'hor)

Meaning: black; dark

the name given to the river Nile in Isa. 23:3; Jer. 2:18

In Josh. 13:3 it is probably “the river of Egypt”, i.e., the Wady el-Arish (1 Chr. 13:5), which flows “before Egypt”, i.e., in a northeasterly direction from Egypt, and enters the sea about 50 miles southwest of Gaza.
