Easton's Bible Dictionary


a breastplate, the Sidonian name of Hermon (q.v.), Deu 3:9; Psa 29:6.

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia


sir'-i-on (siryon; Sanior): The name of Mt. Hermon among the Phoenicians (De 3:9). It is given as "Shirion" in Ps 29:6 (Hebrew "breastplate" or "body armor"). Here it is named with Lebanon. Sirion therefore probably did not denote a particular part of the Hermon Range, as did Senir, but may have been suggested by the conformation of the range itself, as seen from the heights above the Phoenician coast.

Smith's Bible Dictionary


(breastplate) one of the various names of Mount Hermon, that by which it was known to the Zidonians (Deuteronomy 3:9). The use of the name in Psalm 29:6 (slightly altered in the original- Shirion instead of Sirion) is remarkable.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
