(toward the wells), Bero’-tha-i (my wells). The first of these two names is given by Ezekiel, (Ezekiel 47:16) in connection with Hahlath and Damascus as forming part of the northern boundary of the promised land. The second is mentioned,
(2 Samuel 8:8) in the same connection. The well-known city Beirut (Berytus) naturally suggests itself as identical with one at least of
the names; but in each instance the circumstances of the case seem to require a position farther east. They were probably
in the vicinity of the springs near the present Hasbeya.
