Harod, Spring of
Harod, Spring Of
Lieut. Conder suggests for this (Tent Work, 2:69) the modern Ain el- Jema'm ("fountain of the two troops"), described (Memoirs to Ordnance Map, 2:81) as "a small spring of fresh water, with a considerable stream, between two larger ones," and laid down three miles west of Beisan. But this is to accommodate his theory of the location of Megiddo as near the Jordan. There is no good reason to desert the traditionary site of Ain Jalid, which is briefly described in the same Memoirs (2:79).
