|JACKAL'S WELL |
Water source outside Jerusalem, accessible from the Valley Gate (Nehemiah 2:13, NIV, RSV). Other English translations designate this water source as the Dragon(‘s) fountain (TEV), spring (NRSV, REB), or well (KJV, NAS). The spring is possibly En-rogel or more likely a water source in the upper part of the Hinnom Valley. See Jerusalem; Jackal.
