be'-er (be'er; phrear; Latin puteus = "well"):
(1) A station on the march of the Israelites to the North of the Arnon (Nu 21:16). Here it was that they sang round the well this song:
`Spring up O well; greet it with song,
Well, that the princes have dug,
The nobles of the people have bored,
With the scepter--with their staves' (Nu 21:16 ff).
The place is not identified.
(2) The town to which Jotham fled from his brother Abimelech after declaring his parable from Mt. Gerizim (Jdg 9:21). This may be identical with BEEROTH, which see.
