Was Lebanon a Country or just a Region? (promised to Israel)

Zionsake Editorial
(More info about Lebanon below)

We suspected that Lebanon wasn't a country or a state in Biblically times and analyzed all the scriptures that contain the word Lebanon.  And we couldn't find a single scripture that states explicitly that Lebanon was a country. It is only referred to as a region, viz.:

The following seemed to hint that it was a country, but the landmark referred to, "the tower of Lebanon," could just as well have been a landmark of a region - like Mt. Hermon in the Golan, that doesn't make the Golan a country.

There seemed to have been "Kingdom Cities" in the Lebanon, like that of king Hiram:

The Lebanon was Promised to Israel

The Fame of the Cedars of Lebanon

The Significance of Lebanon to king Solomon

The Lebanon in Allegory

Rich Symbolism of the Lebanon Region
  • Isa 37:24And you have said, 'With my many chariots I have ascended the heights of the mountains, the utmost heights of Lebanon. I have cut down its tallest cedars, the choicest of its pines. I have reached its remotest heights, NIV

  • Isa 60:13 "The glory of Lebanon will come to you, the pine, the fir and the cypress together, NIV

  • Ezek 31:3 Consider Assyria, once a cedar in Lebanon, with beautiful branches overshadowing the forest; NIV

In our day: Lebanon will be destroyed and the returnining Jews will be settled in it.
The demise of Lebanon was initiated by the destabilizing the Palestinians refugees had effected there after they had been banned from Jordan - after they nearly succeeded to unseat the government in Jordan. It led to a disrupting of the balance between the Christian and Moslem sectors of the Lebanese society, in favour of the Moslems. Subsequently Israel's restored the balance with their intervention in 1982 by driving out Arafat and his PLO and maintained the balance by strengthening and supporting the mostly Christian South Lebanes Army (SLA). All to be lost, however, when foolhardy leftest conspirator of no equal, Ehud Barak, became Prime Minister of Israel and withdrew Israel's forces from Lebanon, betraying Israel's ally, the SLA and the Christians - leaving a vacuum that was filled by the Hisballah terrorists backed by Syria and Iran. (See "Ehud Barak's illustrious political career" for more disasters he has brought on Israel)

This unwise counsel to Barak was, nevertheless most probably the God of Israel's doing since it has mobilized Hisballah on the border, threatening Israel with about 12,000 missiles together with Syria and their missiles that will force Israel to destroy them should they start firing these missiles - as in Isaiah 17, that will restore these areas to Israel for settlement of returning Jews

  • Zechariah 10:10 I will bring them back from Egypt and gather them from Assyria. I will bring them to Gilead and Lebanon, and there will not be room enough for them. 11 They will pass through the sea of trouble; the surging sea will be subdued and all the depths of the Nile will dry up. Assyria's pride will be brought down and Egypt's scepter will pass away. 12 I will strengthen them in the LORD and in his name they will walk," declares the LORD. Zechariah 11:1 Open your doors, O Lebanon, so that fire may devour your cedars..
