Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
Ἰορδάνης Iordánēs, ee-or-dan'-ace; of Hebrew origin (H3383); the Jordanes (i.e. Jarden), a river of Palestine:—Jordan.
Ἰορδάνης, -ου [Buttmann, 17], , [cf. Winer's Grammar § 18, 5 a.], (יַרְדֵּן, from יָרַד to descend; for other opinions about the origin of the name see Gesenius, Thesaurus, ii., p. 626 [cf. Alex.'s Kitto under the word Jordan]), the Jordan, the largest and most celebrated river of Palestine, which has its origin in numerous torrents and small streams at the foot of Anti-Lebanon, flows at first into Lake Samochonitis (Merom so-called; [modern: el-Huleh; see BB. DD. under the word Merom (Waters of)]), and issuing thence runs into the Lake of Tiberius (the Sea of Galilee). After quitting this lake it is augmented during its course by many smaller streams, and finally empties into the Dead Sea: Matthew 3:5ff,Matthew 3:13; Matthew 4:15,25; 19:1; Mark 1:5, 9; Mark 3:8; Mark 10:1; Luke 3:3; Luke 4:1; John 1:28; John 3:26; John 10:40; cf. Winers RWB [and BB. DD.] under the word Jordon; Arnold in Herzog vii., p. 7ff; Furrer in Schenkel, iii., p. 378ff; [Robinson, Phys. Geogr. of the Holy Land, pp. 144-186].
