From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    dark; blue, not found in Scripture, but frequently referred to
    in the Old Testament under the name of Sihor, i.e., "the black
    stream" (Isa. 23:3; Jer. 2:18) or simply "the river" (Gen. 41:1;
    Ex. 1:22, etc.) and the "flood of Egypt" (Amos 8:8). It consists
    of two rivers, the White Nile, which takes its rise in the
    Victoria Nyanza, and the Blue Nile, which rises in the
    Abyssinian Mountains. These unite at the town of Khartoum,
    whence it pursues its course for 1,800 miles, and falls into the
    Mediterranean through its two branches, into which it is divided
    a few miles north of Cairo, the Rosetta and the Damietta branch.
