Deuteronomy 3:9  (King James Version)
(Which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call it Shenir;)

Mount Hermon is the south-eastern branch of Lebanon, beyond Jordan. The Chaldee Targumist, who places it at Csarea and Samaritan interpreter call it {toor talga,} "the mountain of snow," because of its being always covered with snow; and Jerome informs us, that it lies higher than Paneas or Csarea Philippi, and that in the summer time snow used to be carried from thence to Tyre. It is now call El Heish, and is comprised in the district of Kanneytra.
