Moreh, Hill of
Moreh, Oak of
Hebrew - Moreh

(moh' reh) Place name meaning, “instruction” or “archers.” 1. Place where several important events in the lives of the patriarchs and the nation Israel occurred. An oak tree at the site is mentioned several times as being the focal point. Abraham's first encampment in the land of Canaan was at Moreh. There he built an altar after God had appeared to him and entered into covenant (Genesis 12:6-7). Jacob buried there the foreign gods his family had brought from Haran (Genesis 35:4).

At Moreh God pronounced the blessing and curse on Israel regarding their keeping the commandments (Deuteronomy 11:26-30). Joshua set up a memorial stone under the oak as a reminder of the covenant made between God and the people (Joshua 24:26).

2. Hill in tribal territory of Issachar where Gideon reduced his troops by testing the way they drank water (Judges 7:1). Modern Nebi Dachi opposite Mount Gilboa.
