What is a Ford?
        , a word frequently used to designate the crossing of any stream, but especially of the Jordan, as Josh 2:7; Jud 3:28; Jud 12:5-6; of the Jabbok, Gen 32:22; of the Arnon, Isa 16:2; of the Euphrates. Jer 51:32. Until recently the fords of the Jordan were supposed to be only 8 or 10 in number, but the British Palestine Survey has noted about 50.
