En-mish'pat (Hebrews Eyn Mishpat', ין מִשׁפָּט, fountain of judgment; Sept. ἡ πηγὴ τῆς κρίσεως), the earlier name (Ge 14:7) for KADESH SEE KADESH (q.v.), in the borders of Idumaea (comp. Nu 20:13-14). According to Schwarz (Palest. page 214), there is found, about 10 miles south of Petra, a large spring, still called by the Bedouins Ain el-Sedaka, or spring of justice, which he holds to be the same as the ancient En-mishpat; but this would be very far south for the required locality, SEE EXODE; and the spot he names is doubtless the Ain el-Usdakah markedon Robinson's Map as identical with the Zodocatha of the Roman post-routes (Reland, Palest. page 230).
