Ain (1)
Ain (2)
Hebrew - Ain, Fountain, fountain, fountains
Ain -


1. Fountain, spring, which flashes in the landscape like a gleaming eye. Distinguished from beer, a dug well (Exodus 15:27), "wells," rather springs. Generally in compositions En-gedi, "fountain of kids," En-dor, "fountain of the house," etc. Plural in John 3:23, AEnon; like the Yorkshire Fountains Abbey. Riblah, E. of Ain (Hebrew the spring), marks the eastern boundary of Palestine (Numbers 34:11). Riblah is identified as on the N. E. side of the Hermon mountains; and Ain answers to Ain el 'Azy (nine miles from Riblah, on the N.E. side), the source of the Orerites.

2. A southern city of Judah, afterward of Simeon, then assigned to the priests (Joshua 15:32; Joshua 19:7; Joshua 21:16).
