KIDRON

kid'-ron (Kedron; the King James Version Cedron):

A place which, in obedience to Antiochus Sidetes, Cendebaeus fortified (1 Macc 15:39), to which, when defeated, he fled, hotly pursued by John and Judas, sons of Simon the Maccabee, who burned the city (1 Macc 16:4). It is named along with Jamnia (Yebna) and Azotus (Esdud). It is possibly identical with Katrah], a village about 3 miles Southwest of `Aqir (Ekron).
