Ancient En Dor

Map of Ancient En Dor


En Dor in Easton's Bible Dictionary fountain of Dor; i.e., "of the age", a place in the territory of Issachar (Josh. 17:11) near the scene of the great victory which was gained by Deborah and Barak over Sisera and Jabin (comp. Ps. 83:9, 10). To Endor, Saul resorted to consult one reputed to be a witch on the eve of his last engagement with the Philistines (1 Sam. 28:7). It is identified with the modern village of Endur, "a dirty hamlet of some twenty houses, or rather huts, most of them falling to ruin," on the northern slope of Little Hermon, about 7 miles from Jezreel.

En Dor in Fausset's Bible Dictionary ("the spring of Dor".) In Issachar, yet Manasseh's possession. Here it was that Sisera and Jabin perished (Psalm 83:9-10). Endor is not mentioned in Judges 4 as the scene of the Canaanites' overthrow; but Taanach and Megiddo are mentioned with Endor in Joshua 17:11, and in Judges 4 they are represented as the scene of the battle with Sisera's host. Endor being near would naturally be the scene of many "perishing"; an undesigned coincidence between the psalm and the independent history, and so confirming both. The good omen associated with the place may have lured Saul to his fatal visit to the witch (1 Samuel 28:7). Endur is still a village on the slope of a mountain to the N. of jebel Duhy, "the little Hermon." Caves abound there, in one of which probably the incantation took place; eight miles, over rugged ground, from the Gilboa heights; so that Saul must have passed the Philistine camp on his way from his own army to the witch, and the way the unhappy king crept round in the darkness may be traced step by step.

En Dor in Smiths Bible Dictionary (fountain of Dor), a place in the territory of Issachar, and yet possessed by Manasseh. Jos 17:11 Endor was the scene of the great victory over Sisera and Jabin. It was here that the witch dwelt whom Saul consulted. 1Sa 28:7 it was known to Eusebius, who describes it was a large village four miles south of Tabor. Here to the north of Jebel Duhy the name still lingers. The distance from the slopes of Gilboa to Endor is seven or eight miles, over difficult ground.

En Dor in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE en'-dor `en dor, Josh 17:11; `en dor, 1 Sam 28:7; `en do'r, Ps 83:10; Codex Alexandrinus, Nendor; Codex Vaticanus, Aeldor): A town in the lot of Issachar assigned to Manasseh (Josh 17:11). Here dwelt the woman who had a familiar spirit, whom Saul consulted on the night before the battle of Gilboa (1 Sam 28:7). Here also, according to Ps 83:10, perished fugitives of Sisera's army, after their defeat at the Kishon. The place was therefore not far from the Kishon and Tabor. It is generally identified with the modern Endur, a small village on the northern slope of Jebel ed-Duchy, with several ancient caves. It is not far from Nain and Shunem, and looks across the valley along which the broken ranks of Sisera may have attempted to make their way eastward to the open uplands, and thence to their native North. Coming hither from Gilboa, eluding the Philistine outposts under cover of the darkness, Saul would cross the Vale of Jezreel, and pass round the eastern base of the mountain, the Philistines being on the west.
