What does AMANA mean?
- This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain: Easton, Matthew George. "". Easton's Bible Dictionary. T. Nelson and Sons. Amana - perennial. The Hebrew margin of 2 Kings 5:12 suggests another reading of Abana, a stream near Damascus. Amana is also the name of a mountain, probably Amanus, or the southern summit of Anti-Libanus, at the base of which are the sources of the Abana. Most English translations of the Song of Solomon, beginning with the King James Version, adhere to the transliteration of Amana in verse 4:8. Solomon's bride is implored by the Beloved to descend with him from the "peak of Amana", as well as Mount Senir and Hermon. The descent is safely through the dens of lions and the presence of leopards. Strong's Concordance lists Amana as number 0594 in the Hebrew Lexicon, with no other instances of Amana in the Old or New Testament. The "mountains of Sanir and Amana" are also delineated in Jubilees as within the inheritance of Shem, or more specifically, Arpachshad.
