 17:22   David and all the troops with him promptly crossed the Yarden

The Hebrew name for the Jordan river is Yarden (ירדן), a word formed from the Hebrew words yorayd Dan (יורד דן), which means ‘descends [from] Dan.’ The territory of Dan is the northernmost part of Eretz Yisrael. The Jordan river flows the length of the country from north to south, starting near Dan at the foot of Mount Chermon, and ending at the Dead Sea. In its 250 km course, the Yarden descends from a height of over 2800 meter above sea level to more than 350 meter below, making it the river with the lowest elevation in the world.
