Well
        (Heb. beer), to be distinguished from a fountain (Heb. 'ain). A
        "beer" was a deep shaft, bored far under the rocky surface by
        the art of man, which contained water which percolated through
        the strata in its sides. Such wells were those of Jacob and
        Beersheba, etc. (see Gen. 21:19, 25, 30, 31; 24:11; 26:15,
        18-25, 32, etc.). In the Pentateuch this word beer, so rendered,
        occurs twenty-five times.
