Brook Cherith

CHERITH, THE BROOK kĕr’ ĭth (נַ֣חַל כְּרִ֔ית, LXX χειμάρρους χορράθ, meaning brook of cutting). A stream or valley E of the Jordan.

According to 1 Kings 17:2-7, Elijah departed to some place along this brook after he had announced the coming drought to King Ahab of Israel. The expression “before Jordan” (KJV) is not clear as to which side of that river was meant. Since Elijah’s home was in Gilead, the E side seems more likely, although there is a tradition that it is the Wadi Qelt near Jericho on the W side. Any number of wadis with their numerous caves could be the Brook Cherith.
