[many Ellpa'ran] (Hebrew Eyl Paran, אֵיל פָּארָן, oak of Paran; Sept. ἡ τερέβινθός [v.r. τερέμιμθος] τῆς Φαράν, Vulg. campestria Pharan), a spot (hounding on the south the territory of the Rephaimn smitten by Chedorlaomer) on the edge of the wilderness bordering the territory of the Horites or Idumaea, probably marked by a noted tree (Ge 14:6). SEE OAK; SEE PARAN. An ingenious writer in the Jour. of Sac. Lit. (October 1851, page 153 note) argues, from the rendering of the Sept., for the identity of El-paran with Elath, but inconclusively.
