Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
A mountain beyond Jordan, in the tribe of Manasseh. It was situated near Cilicia, and which divided it from Syria. Some suppose that the river Abana, which is at the foot of it, took its name from it. (See 2 Kings 5:12.) In the Ketib it is written Abana, but in the Keri it is read Amana; and so the margin of the Bible hath it. It was from hence Christ called his Spouse the church--"Come with me from Lebanon, (my spouse) with me from Lebanon: look from the top of Amana, from the top of Shenir and Hermon, from the lions' den, from the mountains of the leopards;" (Song of Song of Solomon 4:8.) meaning from the fellowship of the evil, which is like the ferocity of beasts, to the sweet communion of Jesus, in his love, and grace, and favour.
