Beer-lahai-roi [EBD]

i.e., "the well of him that liveth and seeth me," or, as some render it, "the well of the vision of life", the well where the Lord met with Hagar (Gen. 16:7-14). Isaac dwelt beside this well (24:62; 25:11). It has been identified with 'Ain Muweileh, or Moilahhi, south-west of Beersheba, and about 12 miles W. from Kadesh-barnea.

Beer-lahai-roi [NAVE]

BEER-LAHAI-ROI, called also Lahai-roi, a well, Gen. 16:14; 24:62; 25:11.


BEER-LAHAI-ROI - be-er-la-hi'-roi, be-er-la-hi-ro'-i (be'er lachai ro'i, "well of the Living One that seeth me"): "A fountain of water in the wilderness," "the fountain in the way to Shur" (Gen 16:7-14). It was the scene of Hagar's theophany, and here Isaac dwelt for some time (Gen 16:7 f; 24:62; 25:11). The site is in The Negeb between Kadesh and Bered (Gen 16:14). Rowland identifies the well with the modern `Ain Moilaihhi, circa 50 miles South of Beersheba and 12 miles West of `Ain Kadis. Cheyne thinks that Hagar's native country, to which she was fleeing and from which she took a wife for Ishmael, was not Egypt (mitsrayim), but a north Arabian district called by the Assyrians Mucri (Encyclopedia Biblica).
