Amana

Additional Links

a -mā´na , (אמנה , 'amanah ): A mountain mentioned in Song of Solomon 4:8 along with Lebanon, Senir and Hermon. The name probably means the "firm," or "constant." "From the top of Amana" is mistranslated by the Septuagint ἀπὸ ἀρχῆς πιστεως , apó archḗs pı́steōs ̌ . The Amana is most naturally sought in the Anti-Lebanon, near the course of the river Abana, or Amana (see ABANAH ). Another possible identification is with Mt. Amanus in the extreme north of Syria.
