Jezreel, Fountain of

Additional Links
Where Saul encamped before the battle of Gilboa (1 Samuel 29:1 ). In the valley under Zerin there are two considerable springs, one of which, perhaps that here referred to, "flows from under a sort of cavern in the wall of conglomerate rock which here forms the base of Gilboa. The water is excellent; and issuing from crevices in the rocks, it spreads out at once into a fine limpid pool forty or fifty feet in diameter, full of fish" (Robinson). This may be identical with the "well of Harod" (Judges 7:1; Compare 2 Samuel 23:25 ), probably the 'Ain Jalud, i.e., the "spring of Goliath."
