        two wells, a famous pasture-ground where Joseph found his
        brethren watching their flocks. Here, at the suggestion of
        Judah, they sold him to the Ishmaelite merchants (Gen. 37:17).
        It is mentioned on monuments in B.C. 1600.
        It was the residence of Elisha (2 Kings 6:13), and the scene
        of a remarkable vision of chariots and horses of fire
        surrounding the mountain on which the city stood. It is
        identified with the modern Tell-Dothan, on the south side of the
        plain of Jezreel, about 12 miles north of Samaria, among the
        hills of Gilboa. The "two wells" are still in existence, one of
        which bears the name of the "pit of Joseph" (Jubb Yusuf).
