Hauran

Hauran [N] [E] [H]

(caverns ), a province of Palestine twice mentioned by Ezekiel. ( Ezekiel 47:16 Ezekiel 47:17 ) There can be little doubt that it is identical with the well-known Greek province of Auranitis and the modern Hauran east of the Sea of Galilee, on the borders of the desert, in the tetrarchy of Philip.
