Bether

Song of Solomon 2:17. Perhaps Bithron, separated from the main part of Israel by Jordan (2 Samuel 2:29), a ravine district, through "all" of which Abner passed, on the N. of the Jabbok, between the Jordan and Mahanaim. It means a cutting. Spiritually "the mountains of Bether" mean mountains of division (margin), or mountains intersected with deep valleys, separating the bride from the heavenly Bridegroom.
