kid´ro ( Κεδρών , Kedrṓn ; the King James Version Cedron ): A place which, in obedience to Antiochus Sidetes, Cendebaeus fortified ( 1 Maccabees 15:39 ff), to which, when defeated, he fled, hotly pursued by John and Judas, sons of Simon the Maccabee, who burned the city ( 1 Maccabees 16:4 ff). It is named along with Jamnia ( Yebna ) and Azotus ( Esdūd ). It is possibly identical with ḳaṭrah , a village about 3 miles Southwest of ‛aḳir (Ekron).
