Mention is frequently made of the fords of the Jordan (Josh. “2:7; Judg. 3:28; 12:5, 6), which must have been very numerous;” about fifty perhaps. The most notable was that of Bethabara. “Mention is also made of the ford of the Jabbok (Gen. 32:22), and” of the fords of Arnon (Isa. 16:2) and of the Euphrates (Jer. 51:32).
