Harod, Well of
Hebrew - Harod
Hebrew - the well of Harod

(hay' rahd) Place name meaning, “quake,” “terror,” or “intermittent spring.” Place where God led Gideon to test his troops to reduce their numbers before fighting Midian (Judges 7:1). It is modern ain Jalud near Gilboa, half way between Affulah and Beth Shean. It is about two miles east southeast of Jezreel. It was home for two of David's heroes (2 Samuel 23:25), though the parallel text in 1 Chronicles 11:27 reads, “Harorite,” representing a copyist's confusion of two letters similar in appearance. The “fountain” of 1 Samuel 29:1 was probably Harod. Some Bible students see a reference to Judges 7:1 in Psalms 83:10 and make a slight change in the Hebrew text to read “Harod” instead of “En-dor.” Compare REB.
