Beer-lahairoi ("the well of Him that liveth and seeth".) Named by Hagar, because God looked after her with loving providence even in the wilderness (Genesis 16:14; Genesis 22:14; compare 2 Chronicles 16:9; Psalm 139). Between Kadesh and Bered, in the S. country. Here Isaac lived before and after his father's death (Genesis 24:62; Genesis 25:11). Identified with a well at Moilahi, a station on the road to Beersheba; near it is the cavern Beit-Hagar. Not to be confounded with the well whereby Ishmael was saved, in Genesis 21:19, subsequently.
