Sihor

black; trouble (the river Nile)

Smith's Bible Dictionary
Sihor

(dark), accurately Shihor, once The Shihor, or Shihor of Egypt, when unqualified a name of the Nile. It is held to signify "the black" or "turbid." In Jeremiah the identity of Shihor with the Nile seems distinctly stated. (Jeremiah 2:18) The stream mentioned in (1 Chronicles 13:5) is possibly that of the Wadi l? Areesh .

ATS Bible Dictionary
Sihor

Black or turbid, the Nile. In Isaiah 23:3 and Jeremiah 2:18, this name must necessarily be understood of the Nile. In Joshua 13:3; 1 Chronicles 13:5, some have understood it of the little river between Egypt and Judah.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
(correctly Shi'hor) black; dark the name given to the river Nile in Isaiah 23:3; Jeremiah 2:18. In Joshua 13:3 it is probably "the river of Egypt", i.e., the Wady el-Arish (1 Chronicles 13:5), which flows "before Egypt", i.e., in a north-easterly direction from Egypt, and enters the sea about 50 miles south-west of Gaza.
