  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Kedron 
  the  valley,  now  quite  narrow,  between  the  Mount  of  Olives  and 
  Mount  Moriah.  The  upper  part  of  it  is  called  the  Valley  of 
  Jehoshaphat.  The  LXX.,  in  1  Kings  15:13,  translate  "of  the 
  cedar."  The  word  means  "black,"  and  may  refer  to  the  colour  of 
  the  water  or  the  gloom  of  the  ravine,  or  the  black  green  of  the 
  cedars  which  grew  there  John  18:1,  "Cedron,"  only  here  in  New 
  Testament.  (See  {KIDRON}.)
