Reference: Beer


1. A station in the journey from Arnon to the Jordan, mentioned Nu 21:18, with a poetical extract commemorating the digging of a well at this spot. The context indicates the neighbourhood, but further identification is wanting. Perhaps the words translated 'and from the wilderness,' which immediately follow this extract (Nu 21:18), should be translated (following the Septuagint) 'and from Beer,' or 'the well.' It is generally identified with Beer-elim ('well of mighty men'?), mentioned Isa 15:8, and in the second part of the compound name it may be conjectured that there is reference to the event commemorated in the song (Nu 21:17-18). 2. The place to which Jotham ran away after uttering his parable (Jg 9:21). Its position is unknown.
