Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible [1]

Senir . The name of Hermon among the Amorites, according to   Deuteronomy 3:9 , but in   Song of Solomon 4:8 and   1 Chronicles 5:23 distinguished from Hermon. It was famous for its large fir-trees (  Ezekiel 27:5 ). This Amoritic name was, naturally enough, the one in vogue among the Babylonians and Assyrians. In Deut. it appears, like Hermon and Sirion, to designate the whole of Anti-Lebanon. When taken more strictly, it stood, we may assume, for the northern portion. The Arab [Note: Arabic.] geographers gave the name to that part of the range lying between Baalbek and Homs.

sē´nir ( שׂניר , senı̄r  ; Σανείρ , Saneı́r ): This was the Amorite name of Mt. Hermon, according to   Deuteronomy 3:9 (the King James Version "Shenir").' But in   1 Chronicles 5:23;  Song of Solomon 4:8 , we have Senir and Hermon named as distinct mountains. It seems probable, however, that Senir applied to a definite part of the Anti-Lebanon or Hermon range. An inscription of Shalmaneser tells us that Hazael, king of Damascus, fortified Mt. Senir over against Mt. Lebanon. So in   Ezekiel 27:5 , Senir, whence the Tyrians got planks of fir trees, is set over against Lebanon, where cedars were obtained. The Arab geographers give the name Jebel Sanı̄r to the part of the Anti-Lebanon range which lies between Damascus and Homs (Yakut, circa 1225 AD, quoted by Guy le Strange in Palestine under the Moslems , 79. He also quotes Mas'udi, 943 AD, to the effect that Baalbek is in the district of Senir, 295).
