(correctly Shi'hor) black; dark the name given to the river Nile in Isaiah 23:3 ; Jeremiah 2:18 . In Joshua 13:3 it is probably "the river of Egypt", i.e., the Wady el-Arish ( 1 Chronicles 13:5 ), which flows "before Egypt", i.e., in a north-easterly direction from Egypt, and enters the sea about 50 miles south-west of Gaza.
