SHIHOR

(sshi' hawr) Egyptian place name meaning, “pool of Horus (a god).” It formed the border of the Promised Land (Joshua 13:3), marking the widest extent of Israel's territorial claims (1 Chronicles 13:5). In Isaiah 23:3; Jeremiah 2:18, the term apparently refers to one of the branches of the Nile River inside Egypt, but the border point places it outside Egypt, identical with the Brook of Egypt or extending Israel's claim to the Nile. See Brook of Egypt; Palestine. The earliest translators did not understand the term in Joshua 13:1.
