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.
