EN- [ISBE]

EN- - (`ayin (compare Arabic `Ain)): The Hebrew word for "spring" or "fountain" (Gen 16:7; Nu 33:9; Neh 2:14; Prov 8:28 (feminine plural)). It occurs in numerous compound words, as EN-GEDI, EN-HADDAH, EN-HAKKORE, EN-HAZOR, EN-RIMMON, EN-ROGEL, EN-SHEMESH (which see). In the same way the word `Ain is a very common component of Arabic names of places throughout Palestine and Syria at the present day. Places with names compounded with "En-" were almost certainly located near a spring.
