si'-hon (cichon):

King of the Amorites, who vainly opposed Israel on their journey from Egypt to Palestine, and who is frequently mentioned in the historical books and in the Psalms because of his prominence and as a warning for those who rise against Yahweh and His people (Numbers 21:21, and often; Deuteronomy 1:4; 31:4; Joshua 2:10; Judges 11:19,20,21; 1 Kings 4:19; Nehemiah 9:22; Psalms 135:11; 136:19; Jeremiah 48:45).
