(ee' ssehk) Place name meaning, “strife.” A well Isaac's servants dug in the valley near Gerar to find water for their herds. The shepherds of Gerar disputed Isaac's claim to the watering place. Isaac apparently gave in to the claim without warfare, thus receiving God's assurance of blessing (Genesis 26:18-22 ).
