{4} Topic: The Times of Jerusalem – The Kidron Brook and Satan, the Leviathan

(A troll guarding the crossing)

Kidron, Hebrew qiḏrôn is Strong’s definition H6939 meaning “dark”or “turbid”. It’s root H6937 – qāḏar means:

  1. (Qal) to be dark
  2. (Hiphil)
    1. to darken
    2. to cause to mourn (memorize this)
  3. (Hithpael) to grow dark

“Kidron” has an association of meanings with the “Leviathan” which shows up in scripture repeatedly and which stands for Satan, the sea monster which/who lives in a sea of people causing the murky and fouled waters to boil and mourn.

Leviathan (symbolically, Satan):

  • Israel’s Deliverance – At that time, with his fierce, mighty, and powerful sword, the Lord will punish the gliding serpent Leviathan—the coiling serpent Leviathan—and he will kill the dragon that’s in the sea. Isaiah 27:1 ISV
  • He causes the deep to boil like water in a pot, and churns the sea like one stirs ointment. Job 41:31 ISV
  • His (Leviathan’s) heart is as strong as stone, it is as hard as a lower millstone. Job 41:24 ISV
  • He beholds every high thing; He is king over all the children of pride.” Job 41:34 NKJV
  • The huge dragon was hurled down. That ancient serpent, called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world, was hurled down to the earth, along with its angels. Revelation 12:9 NKJV

Compare The Hebrew meaning for Kidron with the Hebrew meaning of Leviathan:

“Leviathan” Hebrew livyāṯān Strong’s definition h3882 from H3867; a wreathed animal, i.e. a serpent, a large sea-monster; figuratively, the constellation of the dragon; also as a symbol of Babylon:—leviathan, mourning.


  • Both “Kidron” and “Leviathan” have the same meaning: “mourning” or “to mourn”.
  • The Dragon and Leviathan (a sea monster who lives in the sea of people) are one and the same, both represent Satan.
  • Jerusalem is the city of “Peace” and “Light” where Jesus will rule when He returns.
    • Jerusalem = “teaching of peace”
    • Bethany = “house of dates” or, “house of misery”
  • Metaphorically speaking; Jesus arrived at the house of misery leaving his home in heaven, “crossed over” the brook of mourning to enter the city of Peace and Light. The word “Hebrew” means “to cross over”. To cross over (from death to life) is like “passing over” from death to life, which is the Passover.
